Informal after-dark urban orienteering, controls normally numbers on street furniture.
Each event has a choice of 3 courses - Short approx. 4 km, Medium approx 6km, Long approx 8km, or is of a score format with 3 different time limits, eg 30/45/60 minutes.
A headlamp / torch is highly advisable, but it need not be a full-power terrain night-O one. You should also wear a light / reflective top to help ensure you are seen. Whistles are also required.

The normal time for starts is 6:30 to 7:30pm, in order to avoid the worst of the rush hour traffic. Earlier starts will be available at some events and may possibly be negotiated by individuals at others.
Events use urban streets and paths, with the occasional stretch of open space or canal towpath. A headlight or torch is often useful, particularly for the longer courses, but it doesn't need to be particularly powerful - enough to see your footing and read the map.
Participants are responsible for their own safety and take part at their own risk. Courses may cross main roads and some reflective clothing is advisable.
Trophies are awarded for overall winners on each course at the end of the season.
