Devon Orienteering

From Sunday 29th November 2020

Our next maprun has been planned by Chris Perry and is aimed at orienteers in the eastern part of the county. 'Hope you enjoy it!

For more details see below. 

Course information:

  • This is a 60 minute Score course on the North side of Woodbury Common
  • The map is at a scale of 1:10000.


  • The start is close to the small car park at SY041881 on the B3180, 1 km N E of Woodbury Castle.

 Essential information:

  • If you haven't tried MapRun before more details can be found on the website here: Devon Orienteering Club Maprun
  • NB. On 24.11.20, a couple of changes have been made to the Woodbury map, controls and control descriptions, including a significant Out of Bounds area in the centre of the map. Make sure you have printed the latest V2 versions. 
  • The map can be printed off using the following link: Woodbury North Score 2020 V2
  • Control Descriptions can also be printed off here: Woodbury North Score 2020 Control Descriptions V2
  • The course pin is being removed on Sunday 29th November (meaning you can do the Maprun from that day)
  • As always it is sensible to download your course onto your phone using the Maprun F app before you arrive..  Do not think about running the course without a paper map… you will not be successful !
  • As with all our MapRun courses you are free to run these courses whenever you like, as many times as you like.  MapRun produces a set of results so you are able to compare your time and route with others.

General safety guidance for all individual Mapruns:  

  • Individual Mapruns are run at your own risk 
  • Each runner should make their own assessment of risks in the Maprun area, including terrain and weather, and how those risks are best managed.  
  • Be aware of risks associated with traffic, cyclists and pedestrians, and act sensibly 
  • Under 16’s should be accompanied or appropriately supervised, particularly where there are risks associated with traffic. (NB. The above Golden dagger course is not suitable for novices.)
  • Current social distancing guidance and other measures to limit risks associated with coronavirus should be followed.
