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.

JOG Autumn 2021

OK, so our plans have gone a bit out of the window because Forestry England has raised its fees and now treats juniors as full adults in their pricing structure. This happening so late in the permissions process has meant that we have had to make some difficult decisions.

We fundamentally believe that JOG events should be run as cheaply as possibly, and have always subsidised them from income from bigger events. We cannot achieve that under the new charging regime so have done our best to restructure the already-planned series to enable it to go ahead.

Some events will have physical controls as usual. Some will have to be conducted using GPS controls as we did during COVID restrictions. And some might have some courses one and some the other.

​My MapRun Experiences

Roger Craddock (President)

Our President shares some of his tips and tricks...

During lockdowns (and trying to keep to guidance to exercise from home) I have used the many opportunities to ‘virtual’ orienteer in Taunton, Somerset.

I use the latest version of the app MapRun6 with smartphone and either GPS or QR code punching, or a Garmin watch with GPS punching, to vary my options.
