SuffOC MapRun League

Have you tried any of our MapRun courses? We now have a variety of courses, situated in many parts of the county - enough for us to be able to set up a Club League for these courses, in addition to our regular league for official events. Sarah has set up a pilot league for the remaining months in 2020 & this will be scaled up for next year.

There are 5 courses which will enable you to score league points until the end of September, in Woodbridge, Ipswich East, Cedars Park (Stowmarket), Hardwick & Nowton (Bury St Edmunds) & Brandon Country Park. Additional courses will be added to the list from August onwards - the first of these is at Kesgrave. You can find full details of the league here.

If you haven't tried MapRun yet - they're great fun, & this page will help you to get started. It might be worth practising on a course which isn't on our league list to enable you to sort out the technical bits first - all our courses are listed here.

We've done "Lockdown Orienteering" & "Virtual Bury St Edmunds" - now that we're allowed a little more freedom, albeit very carefully, why not try running a real orienteering course? We can't offer mass events with physical SI controls but we have been working on courses which you can follow on your own, or with your family group, using the GPS on your smartphone together with an app, MapRunF.

We've a handful of courses already waiting for you - mainly Street-Os at the moment, similar to some of our Summer Series events, as we need to choose areas with easy public access. There's a whole new section on the website explaining what to do, starting from here, so why not give it a go & share your results with us?

Our Next Events:

Christchurch Park

16th August 2020

We're hoping to be able to go ahead with a small-scale activity for members, with pre-booked start times, following the guidance received from British Orienteering, & information will be distributed via the club mailing lists. The current spread of C-19 has been likened to a wildfire, springing back unexpectedly, & the council is understandably hesitant to grant permission for events more than a few days in advance. Despite the current uncertainty, please contact the organisers to reserve your place ASAP so that preparations can be made & to ensure that you receive the most up-to-date information.

Apologies, we weren't able to run this event earlier in the summer. We're hoping we may be able to go ahead with the event on this revised date - further details soon....
