A new area to SOC street-O (at least for me in my third year of running in them)

For those who haven't ventured out before, the event format is a fun one hour score event using a specially prepared map with no street names. Usually all controls (typically lamposts or telegraph poles) can be reached by sticking to the roads/footpaths. Entry is free and you just need to bring a torch (to read the map), a map bag (if the weather is inclement), a pen (if you wish to copy down the control codes to prove you've been there) and money (if you want to go to the pub afterwards!). You're welcome to run round as a pair/group if you prefer.

Mass start at 8 pm. Please note later time chosen because Bransgore is a longer drive for many members. Meet at the car park of the Crown public house in the middle of the village at grid Reference SZ188979

Lyndhurst Street-O features some interesting street and forest path running, you'll encounter animals roaming the roads and find footpaths/routes that you never knew existed.
