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.
