Xmas 2020

We're still hoping to bring you the events we've scheduled for 2021, but, in the meantime, along with many other clubs, we've been continuing to develop our catalogue of virtual MapRun courses. The courses are similar to those we put on in our Summer Series - the latest offerings are a score course in Aldeburgh, thanks to Ray, & a long & short linear course in Elmswell, generated by Sarah's Purple Pen. At the suggestion of one of our regular MapRunners we're also beginning to put together some 5Km Run Routes, e.g. this one in Elmswell. As they're fairly simple routes they'll be a good introduction to MapRun, in addition providing a timed route for those missing their regular parkrun!

 If you've not tried MapRunF before you'll find instructions on the website - you'll need to download the app & the course onto your smartphone. It's easier to plan your route from a printed map than a small screen, so we've put the relevant map file onto each course page for you to download & print - you can then keep your phone in your pocket or belt. Some Garmins are also able to store the course information so you only need to use your phone to transfer the course file & the results. You set off with map in hand & your Garmin acts as a contactless SI card - real orienteering!

 So - have a go, have fun, & encourage your friends to try our virtual courses to liven up Xmas & the New Year..
