MapRun and Routegadget

Virtual Orienteering

Many of us use Routegadget to analyse our runs and compare them to other people trying the same course. But did you know that all MapRun events and permanent courses automatically upload your track to a special Routegadget page?

That means that every Street Series course and every GPS or QR punching JOG course has its own Routegadget page. For linear courses you can also compare splits.

There are even Permanent Orienteering Courses with this functionality! You can try them out in your own time, perhaps even do them several times and compare different route choices.

Some are traditional courses where you write down the letter or number on a wooden post. Some are tracked by GPS on your smartphone. And some you scan QR codes to prove you've been to each control.

Check them out here...
