Turf Challenge continues Up to 11.00 a.m. on Sunday 7th March

Our challenge continues - Can we collectively turn all of the West of Anglia red by individually taking the zones close to our homes by 11.00 a.m. on 7th March 2021?

Anywhere smartphone score orienteering but fellow runners can ‘capture’ your controls (they call them zones) so you may have to go back!

Turf, a Scandinavian app, can be downloaded to your smartphone easily – search Turf in your app store, download, open, choose a user name and password, open the map and go. At each control (sorry zone) wait for a short while instead of punching, and when the green bar is 100% your phone will tell you that you have taken the zone.

The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
