Christmas 2020 eventIt's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Last Updated: Thu 10 Dec 2020

We have created a family-friendly Christmas event combining orienteering and a quiz for you to run at your leisure at Lammas Land in Cambridge.

This event is a virtual MapRun orienteering course which you can do at a time that suits you – perfect for social distancing and great fun! The course is around 1.4km long with 14 controls to find and doesn’t cross any roads.

You just need to:

  1. Visit here in advance to read more, download and print the map to take with you.Take a note of the start location on the same information page.
  2. Download the free app MapRunF to your smart mobile phone, open up the app and enter your details, including the Club ‘WAOC’.
  3. When you want to head out, make sure your phone has a good amount of charge.
  4. When you arrive at Lammas Land, open the app, click ‘Events near me’ and select Lammas Land Christmas 2020.
  5. When you’re ready to run, click ‘Go to start’ and then head towards the start location just behind the cafe/toilet block. When you get to the start location, your phone will buzz and the clock will start running, so off you go!
  6. As you reach each control, your phone will buzz to tell you you’ve got there. It will also do so at the finish and automatically upload your results.

If you fancy running further, our Coe Fen and Newnham MapRun event is very close by. Or read here about other local virtual and permanent orienteering courses.

We hope you love this different way to enjoy orienteering – Merry Christmas!
