MapRun

MapRun is orienteering using a SmartPhone for punching and timing, avoiding the need to put flags and timing units out on the course. All you need to run the courses are a smartphone with the MapRun app. You can choose to also print off a copy of the map to use too.

We are building up the events that we’ve got across our catchment area. You can find courses using the “Events Near Me” function on the app or by searching for events in the Lincolnshire folder of the directory. There may be some events here in the north of the county that are controlled by our neighbouring club HALO and we encourage you to check out their website to get the information for their courses.

Our current courses available are:

N Hykeham East Feb 2021 – Map
N Hykeham SW Feb 2021 – Map
Welton March 2021 – Map 1, Map 2, Control Descriptions – PIN Code 6701

To build a course, we’ve produced an extensive guide with step by step instructions and helpful images to guide you through the process. This can be found here. One of things not covered is the types of events that you can produce as MapRun are adding types fairly often. You can find the course types, with the naming conventions at this link: https://maprunners.weebly.com/scoring-schemes.html

If you produce a course that you would like to share, please email the kml, kmz and pdf files to maprun@logonline.org.uk and the team will go about putting them on the website and app.
