You will have 45 minutes to collect as many controls (check points) as you can. The controls (check points) are lamp post numbers. Each control (check point) collected is worth 10 points. If you are over the 45 minutes, you will have to take a penalty on 5 points for every minute or part minute late. If more than one person collects all the numbers within the 45 minutes, then the fastest time wins.
Each event will have around 30 controls (check points) to collect.
EBOR will provide the map and control card (to write lamp post numbers on). For those who don’t know, all lamp posts are individually numbered.
You will require a torch or headlamp, pen or pencil, and watch. A compass is sometimes useful.
The Lamp-O series is designed to alternate with CLARO’s Lamp-O events, so that there are weekly events fairly local to the area.
Start and finish are in the same place.
Due to some busy roads juniors under 16 are required to be accompanied by an adult, for insurance purposes.
The Lamp-O series is being run as a league with your best three scores to count. The score will be how many controls you collect.

We have a policy on the taking of photographs at events, based on national guidance. This provides a sensible balance between the benefits and risks associated with the taking and use of images. If you are unsure about acceptable practice, please speak to the event organiser.
