Please get in touch with me if you feel you feel MapRun's published published results are missing any of your controls.

I stepped into the Admin role relatively late on. After three years away from that role, there was a bit of a learning curve! The controls were set up correctly but unfortunately on this occasion the event files were lacked a scoring format, hence the lack of scores on the night.

Will get this right for the next event...the last instalment of our Street Series will be in Somerset's old county town of Somerton on Thursday 16th March.

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.
