Maroc MapRun Madness

Each week over the summer holidays we will be launching a new MapRun virtual orienteering course which you can go and run either on your own (at any time) or with a group. For those that like the idea of some company there will be a meeting point arranged every Monday evening where you can get together to make it a bit more social. The idea of the MMM is to get out there and have some fun whilst hopefully doing some useful (physical and technical) training at the same time. The areas will be primarily urban and / or open and the courses will be set at a maximum techincal level of TD3 (orange equivalent).
