As usual, for the majority of the map you can cross roads anywhere you deem safe. However, in this instance there is a stretch in the north east where I have put in a mandatory crossing.

Mandatory Crossing

There is one area still under construction where the roads have been open and closed at different times in my recce visits. Even the PROW has been variously closed or diverted in different ways. The map in that area cannot be guaranteed to be up to date, so in the interest of fairness the area has been marked OOB.

It is also worth mentioning that Maprun will not punch the finish until you have punched a scoring control. That means you can start and then run straight through the finish safely. So there is no limit on the direction you head off.

Start and Finish

However, once you have punched the start and one scoring control, if you run through the finish it will end your run. So be careful in your planning.

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.

Directions / Parking

Parking in Waitrose car park (if you do some shopping too). There is also some street parking and, slightly further away, town car parks.

Course Information

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.
