Safety Notes

The Score event crosses busy roads hence must not be attempted by anyone under the age of 16, even if they would be accompanied by an adult.

As with all street orienteering events please take care crossing roads. There are many suitable crossing points on all the major roads in the area. Note that trams are street running on the 800m length nearest to East Croydon station, so take extra care there.
