Junior Colour and Participation Badges

Latest updates to the junior colour and participation badges.

An explanation for those new to the club: juniors will automatically gain credit for participation (badges awarded for 5, 10, 25 ,50 & 100 events) and for running colour courses within various criteria (iron, bronze, silver and gold badges can be earned).  Badges earned during the year are normally awarded at the club AGM in November.

If you think that your junior has run events for which they have not been credited, let Pat know (publicity - see contacts page).

Apologies for the sheets not being updated for a while but our juniors have been so busy over the summer it's been almost impossible to keep track!

Please take a moment to look over the sheets for your child to make sure everything makes sense and let Pat know if anything needs added or amended:  publicity 'at' marocscotland.org.uk

MapRun info and list of courses

The "MapRun" app allows you to set up and take part in "Virtual" orienteering courses using your smartphone. You run a course using either the map on your phone screen or a paper version, and your phone will automatically beep when you reach the correct location of each control (nothing marking it on the ground). At the end of the course your results and split times can be saved into a results table alongside others who have run the course.

There are now 15 MapRun courses available (25 Sep 2018) in the Deeside area which you can use as you wish for family recreation or personal training.
