What are MapRun courses?
They're GPS or 'virtual' orienteering courses which you can take part in using an app on your smartphone. You choose & download a course then run or walk it - you won't see any control flags but your phone will be tracking you using your GPS signal & will bleep each time you reach the correct spot. After you've completed your course the phone will upload your results to the MapRun website.
MapRun courses have been used for small events & training by some clubs and have really come into their own in this time of crisis when we're unable to hold mass events. The courses enable you to explore, exercise & have fun on your own or with your family group - & you can compare your results with others later if you wish, even sync your track to Strava, so you won't feel totally alone!
