MapRun 2021 league Series Info
2021 - 2022 MapRun League
Choose between either a 6km or a 3km linear course (note the distances are measured on a direct line between controls and so you can expect to run a third more than advertised).
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.
Please note that controls will not be physically placed. You can run the course traditionally without a smartphone but you will not be eligible for the league. Paper maps will be available for all entering on the Wednesday evening.
See the MapRunners website on how to use MapRun. The MapRun apps, MapRun6 or MapRunG for Garmin watches, are available in the Play Store and App Store.
There will be prizes for the fastest man and women on each of the 6k and 3k courses. Your best 4 runs count.
New? We'd love you to join in! All running abilities are welcome and no orienteering experience is needed. You can just turn up on the Wednesday evening.
Not sure what to bring? You can wear your usual trainers and running kit. We'll have somewhere you can leave a bag while you run. 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.
These events are not intended for juniors, but if they do run, U16's must be at least Orange standard and shadowed.
