MapRun

MapRun courses can be run at any time using the MapRunF smartphone app. For parks there are often markers in place but in urban areas there are no markers but your phone gps signal will confirm each site. We suggest you Download and print the maps from British Orienteering. http://www.britishorienteering.org.uk/pocs You can rely on the map on your phone but in bright sunlight it can be hard to read. The app will show you all the controls you have visited.

Garmin watches: For those with gps watches the phone and gps watch can be linked to display the controls visited and the time remaining for score events. Or use the sister app MaprunG and put your phone away until after the completing the course.

For App instructions click the link below. After your run you can upload your result and compare with others. You can load a result to LEI Routegadget and see what routes others took.

Participant Code of Conduct
Participants must abide by the following code of conduct.

Government guidance takes precedence over this code of conduct. If government guidance changes at any time, it must be followed with immediate effect, including, if necessary, by stopping any orienteering activity.

Anyone orienteering using permanent or virtual courses, or taking part in club activities or events, must follow this guidance to ensure the safety of themselves, other participants, event volunteers and the general public.

It is essential that all participants adhere both to this code of conduct and any additional requirements set out by the organising club. These will form part of the club’s risk assessment for the activity, and maybe a result of restrictions imposed by landowners, local authorities or the government.

Personal safety must be the main driver for all decision making.

DO NOT take part in any form of orienteering if you have any COVID-19 symptoms or are required to self-isolate under the current government guidance.

You must follow these rules when taking part in orienteering:

  • Act as an ambassador for the sport of orienteering at all times. Consider how your actions may appear in the eyes of landowners or members of the public.
  • Train on your own. Training in informal groups is not acceptable. You can only train with other members of your household or (in England only) with up to one person from outside your household, if you stay two metres apart at all times.
  • When training, make someone else aware of your planned route and intended start and finish time, and let them know when you return home.
  • Use your judgment when choosing where to go orienteering. Avoid using areas which are likely to be particularly busy with members of the public, or where an injury or accident could require the services of mountain rescue.
  • Stay local and, wherever possible, avoid using public transport.
  • Ensure you have read and fully understood any information or instructions provided by a club before you arrive at an orienteering course.
  • Observe social distancing requirements at all times, including –but not only –when travelling to a course, when you arrive, while on the course, and when you leave. Minimise, as far as possible, contact with others from outside your household before, during and after orienteering. Keep your distance from other participants and members of the public. Give way to other participants and members of the public on narrow paths and at gates or stiles.
  • Be patient, courteous and respectful of others at all times.
