New Series of Mapruns!

Exeter Heavitree is the first.....

The next series of map runs start from Sunday 20th September.  In each case the map run will be open for two weeks before being archived to a different Maprun folder. The thinking behind this is to encourage people to get involved on a regular basis but keeping the asset available afterwards if anyone wants to use it.

We are opening up the Exeter Heavitree map run on Sunday 20th September with it staying open until the 3rd October 2020 and hopefully many of you will give it a go. Feel free to post how you did on the Devon OC Facebook page. 

See below for further information. 

  

Events, Activities and Mapruns

Update 7.9.2020

A quick update on where we are in these strange times.

Although we would like to be able to organise some “proper “ events we are in a position where two main landowners, Forestry England and Dartmoor National Park are not currently giving permissions for events. With the National Trust also having limitations on numbers it really is making life difficult for orienteers at the moment.

As a result we have been having a rethink over our Map Runs as it is quite possible that these might have to be the mainstay of the club for a period of time.

MapRun Meet: Whitchurch Common, Dartmoor

Sunday 30th August 9.00am onwards

The last of our Summer run outs is aimed at experienced Orienteers out on the Moor. It is not suitable for novices due to the exposed nature of the area. The closest thing to Real Orienteering at the moment! A lot easier than Holne Moor!

There will be four courses as detailed below, courtesy of Chris Perry.

Steve P. will be there from 9.00 a.m. through to 12.30 p.m. so you can spread out your arrival to suit or even bring up a packed lunch!

MapRun Meet: Holne Moor, Dartmoor

Sunday 23rd August 9.00am onwards

Our next run out is aimed at experienced Orienteers in one of our better areas on the Moor. It is not suitable for novices due to the exposed nature of the area. The closest thing to Real Orienteering at the moment!

There will be four technical courses as detailed below and on this link Holne Moor Maprun

Steve P. will be there from 9.00 a.m. through to 1.00 p.m. so you can spread out your arrival to suit or even bring up a packed lunch!

  

MapRun Meet: Cranbrook

Sunday 16th August 9.00am

Cranbrook Maprun 

Steve Perrelle is organising a Maprun meet this Sunday 16th August at 09:00am using the Cranbrook area. If you fancy a trip to an area you might not know well to test out the course yourselves then it would be great to see you. 

Meet at the Railway Station Car Park  EX5 3BA ( not good for sat navs).

Steve will be there from 9.00 a.m. He can bring along printed maps for anyone who is unable to print off their own from the link above. If you haven't tried MapRun before we can also give you a few tips to get you started.

Please email us:   if you would like to come along.  If more than a few people contact us we may have to stagger arrivals to stay within current guidelines but that shouldn't be a problem. 

This is a 60 minute Odds and Evens Score course around Cranbrook.

Details are available here and additional information below: Cranbrook Maprun.

MapRun: Haytor

Maprun Meet: Sunday 2nd August 09.30

Report 3.8.20:  An almost perfect morning up at Haytor for the latest map run meet up on Sunday.

Although there were almost 40 runners out during the period the venue was big enough so it never seemed overly busy and the warden from the National park was quite happy when he came over for a chat !

Congratulations to all...... but especially the hardy three who managed to get round them all with some time to spare despite two controls being down in the head high bracken.... I clearly need to do something harder to ensure you don't make it in the future.

The technology is "interesting" . Firstly thanks to Matt A for sorting out so many of you and getting it working on what was for many of you new phones.

For the vast majority the system worked perfectly and you could forget your phone and just go Orienteering. There were still a few people with issues which is a shame especially as the answers are far from clear.

 It looks like we are having a weeks break but will be back in the future with more to test your brains including some on Dartmoor. Full details will be posted in the previous week and will also be on the website.    Steve

Haldon Forest Park Maprun now available!

The Permanent Orienteering Course at Haldon was opened in June 2019. You can now run all of the same courses using your smart phone to record -and compare -your time, your split times and your route. 

All the courses have now been tested and Maprun can provide a suitably challenging additional approach to the use of this permanent course.
