Meet up: There will be an informal meet at Erme Court PL21 0SZon Sunday 22nd May between 10am and 11am.

 Steve & Matt will be on hand to provide printed maps to those that need them and
to offer help with using the MapRun app. Please tick the box on
RaceSignUp if you are coming to the Meet up.

Join us afterwards at the Exchange pub for a post-run chitchat!

 

Please note: Due to safety and insurance reasons under 16's must be
accompanied on their run by an adult.


Once you have entered you will be emailed a copy of the map on the day
the course opens. If you enter after the course has opened we will email
you a map as soon as we can.


If you need a map printed, this can be collected at the Meet Up.
Unlike a conventional orienteering event, where you pick up your map after
punching the start, you will have the opportunity to study the course and
plan your route before you start. You are welcome to do this but we would
ask that, for reasons of fairness, you refrain from looking at other
competitors tracks in the results section of the MapRun app before you
have completed your own run

League information: This is the fourth of our Maprun League events.

The League is very low key and informal, just to provide a bit of competition for
those who are keen!

  • You enter and participate entirely at your own risk.
  • As this is a 'run in your own time' event there will not be any First Aid cover.
  • As always with urban events your biggest danger will be traffic! Please take care when crossing all roads!
  • Please be courteous to other people you come across in the area. Keep an eye out for cyclists, pedestrians, as well as cars etc. Oh, and other orienteers! Please be especially careful on narrow paths and lanes and round unsighted corners.
  • To minimise risk please choose a quiet time of day to run. Perhaps take advantage of the light summer evenings. This course is not suitable for running in the dark. Remember that safety is more important than results.
  • Check the weather before travelling and let your next of kin know where you are going.
  • Bright/fluorescent clothing is advisable.


A Risk Assessment has been completed for this event.

Explanation of colour courses

  • White are very easy with all controls on paths. They are mainly used by 6-10 year olds and family groups.
  • Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
  • Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
  • Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
  • Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
  • Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
  • Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
  • Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
