MapRun - a new version of the App is now available


MapRun version 7

MapRun version 7 is published to the Google PlayStore and Apple AppStore under the name "MapRun". This brings us full circle, with MapRun being the name of the original MapRun App, then MapRunF followed by MapRun6. That is, the original MapRun in the App Stores has been replaced (over-written) by this new version.

MapRun version 7 has all of the features of MapRun6 and will ultimately replace MapRun6 as the recommended App, following a period of overlap with MapRun6.

What is Orienteering ?

Baseplate Compass

Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body. The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
