Summer 2023 MapRun League Series Info

A long and short course option are available at each event with approximately 4-6km or 8-10km of running. There are linear courses at some events (find the checkpoints in order as quickly as you can) and score courses at others (find as many checkpoints as you can within a set time limit of 30-40 mins or 45 mins to 1 hour).

Run the course either at the social Wednesday evening event or on your own at any time in the fortnight afterwards (up to midnight on the second Tuesday after the event) for your run to count in the league.
