MapRun app

Banchory, 25th Mar 6:00-8:30pm

A workshop will be held in Banchory on 25th March on how to use and set up courses with the MapRun app. The workshop will be held in the GP room of the old sports centre adjacent to the Academy, from 6:00-8:30pm.

10th Mar 20

There will be an opportunity to test out the app on a score orienteering course around the east end of Banchory, before informal discussion and a run through of the course setting process. All welcome and there is no fee to attend, but please sign up using the Google Form here 

The MapRun app has many attractive features for offering simple opportunities to participate in orienteering, including:

  • There’s no effort in putting out / collecting controls
  • Courses can be used at any time and are there “forever”
  • No vulnerability to vandalism or upkeep required
  • An ongoing results table to motivate participation

As such it has great potential for introducing new people to the sport, running orienteering sessions in schools, and setting up simple club training opportunities.

If you are interested in finding out how it works and how to create your own courses then please come along to this informal practical workshop which will be led by Sarah Dunn.

All are welcome and there's no fee to attend. However, juniors under 15 should be accompanied by a parent. Please bring a smartphone with the MapRun app pre-loaded - you can download it for free from your App Store – so that you can test out a course for yourself. There is further info about the app and current courses on the SOA website here

Please remember to sign up for the workshop here
