Monkton Heathfield is an area of Taunton not used before. There is an interesting mix of traditional streets and new development interspersed with paths and recreation areas. As the last event before Christmas the club has booked a room at the village hall from 6-8pm. There is ample parking and post run analysis can be fuelled by mince pies and mulled wine.
Street Series 2023-24 Series Info
MapRun doesn't need kites, control units or dibbers. All users need is the smartphone (or smartwatch) app. Immediately after your run, you can upload your score and time to the web and compare how you did with others.
Further information about this and all other events in the current series - please read before competing
It's worth reading our MapRun User Guide if you are new or having problems.

Code of Conduct
Please read the Participant Code of Conduct and, if appropriate, the Parent Code of Conduct. Attendance at the event indicates that you accept them.
Three courses are offered, Long, Short, and Accessible. Long and Short use exactly the same controls and you can decide between them on the night.
All are "Score" courses, meaning there isn't a set order to the controls you visit.
Short Score - the order of the controls you want to visit is entirely up to you.
Long Score - odds and evens format used. That is, there are two sets of controls, odd numbered controls and even numbered ones, one set tackled after the other (running through two of a particular colour sets your first block and then two of the other colour switches you). Once you switch to the second set, you cannot go back to the first set. The control circles on the map are coloured red on one set and blue on the other. The colours are meaningful only for the Long score.
Accessible - wheelchair friendly. It is an adapted version of the Short course with width restrictions, steps, etc. marked and inaccessible controls removed.
The optimum routes are typically between 7.5 and 10 km for the long and 6 to 7.5 km for the short.
Each course has a time limit of 50 minutes.
Points will be deducted at a rate of 30 points per minute for each minute or part minute you're late back.
Points values for controls are variable and denoted by the first number of the control, e.g. 62 scores 60 points.

Pre-entry and payment online is preferred. Payment on the night using contactless or cash is possible but you risk us having run out of maps.
Please consider buying a pack of pre-entry credits in advance. This costs you the same but saves the club a lot in credit card fees.
