Training Evening League
Updated Summer MapRun League details!
League of eight 45 minute MapRun score courses
Opportunity to run the courses either at the social Wednesday evening events or on your own at any time up until 18:00 on Wednesday 1st September 2021. All running abilities are welcome and no orienteering experience is needed.
45 minute score course - find as many checkpoints as you can within the 45 minute time limit. Your smartphone buzzes when you reach each checkpoint. Courses are being planned, where areas allow, to enable the faster runners to cover 10 km. 20 points per control and 10 point deduction for every minute (or part thereof) that you are late.
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 and when the COVID rules allow there will be a social debrief in the host pub afterwards.
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.
Two separate competitions
Wednesday MapRun League: Your best 4 runs count (men and women’s competitions)
Anytime MapRun League: Your best 5 runs count and these can include Wednesday runs (men and women’s competitions).
New and not sure what to bring? We'd love you to join in! 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.
