MapRun doesn't need kites, control units or dibbers. All users need is the smartphone app. Immediately after your run, you can upload your score and time to the web and compare how you did with others.
Please read the further information about this and all other events in the current series before competing
It's worth reading our MapRun User Guide if you are new or having problems.

Directions / Parking
The start/finish is just behind Waitrose. There is plenty of free on-street parking in the industrial estate accessed via Sylvan Road then Scott's Lane, or the town South Street car park is only a couple of minutes' walk away. Or you could combine your run with a shop and use the supermarket car park.
Two courses are offered, Long and Short, using exactly the same controls. You do not need to decide in advance which you will be doing.
Both 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. 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.
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.
