Course Information

There will be two courses as in previous years, one for seniors and one for juniors.

Junior Course

All juniors aged under 16 on the day of the competition MUST run this course.

This course uses the areas of The Meads and St. Matthews Field.

This course does not cross any public roads, but subject to final planning may run a short distance on the pavement adjacent to a quiet residential road.

1-hour score course with controls of differing values.

SIAC punching will be used.

Senior Course

This will be different from previous years in that it will be a Maprun course.

It will still be a 1-hour score course, where the controls can be taken in any order.

The course uses the same areas as the junior course, and in addition, extends north into the town centre and south into Hamp.

The time penalty for taking longer than 1 hour is 10 points per minute over the hour.

If you are new to MapRun, we have a section on the website to help you get started. There are several permanent courses in the Taunton area that you can use to practice.

Please get in touch if you do not have a Smartphone, and are unable to borrow one from family/friends.

Those who do not wish the compete on the Senior course may compete non-competitively on the Junior course.
