Note new dates for the last two events - Handsworth Wood Thu 17 Mar, Malvern Thu 24 Mar
During the dark autumn and winter weekday nights Harlequins put on the Night Street League (NSL). This is street orienteering - in the dark. The highlight of most NSL years is the Bewdley International Mountain Marathon (BIMM) organised by Russ Fauset. Having exhausted all that Bewdley has to offer, the BIMM has in recent years moved further afield to such classic urban-O terrain as Venice, London and, er, Droitwich.
The NSL Coordinator presents the trophies to the 2010-11 winners:

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.
Short (around 4km), Medium (around 6km) and Long (around 9km) courses are available. Trophies are awarded for overall winners on each course at the end of the season.
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.
