Our MapRun™ summer series is ideal for runners of all abilities who fancy trying something new. It’s a lot of fun, we’re friendly and no orienteering experience is needed!

Run on the Wednesday evening with others (sign up from 6.30 p.m. to start by 7 p.m.) or within the following fortnight at a time that suits you.

How each event works
Find the checkpoints using the map provided, with your smartphone telling you when you’ve reached each one.
A long and short course option available at each event (4-5km or 8-10km of running). Linear courses at some events (find the checkpoints in order as quickly as you can) and score courses at others (find as many as you can within either 30 or 45 minutes).
New to MapRun™ orienteering?
We'd love you to join in! All running abilities are welcome and you don’t need to have done orienteering before. You can just turn up on the Wednesday evening (free friendly tips!) or give it a go on your own.
Not sure what to bring for a Wednesday run? You can wear your usual trainers and running kit. Bring a debit/credit card for your entry fee. Finally, bring a well-charged smartphone - if you can, download the free app 'MapRun6' in advance, but if you arrive a bit early we can help with that. We'll have somewhere you can leave a bag while you run.
You can see the updated scores after 2 events on the WAGAL scoreboard, where you can also browse results from previous years.
The next WAGAL event will be at Great Dunmow Urban on 9th October. Remaining WAGAL events in the 2022 calendar are (provisionally) the CompassSport Trophy final on 16th October, and the EA Champs at Santon Downham in November. Best 3 scores during the year will count.
