Posted: Mon 2 Nov 2020

There are also a number of simple orienteering courses for you to try whilst the lockdown continues, new ones will be added below when they become available.

There will be a few different ways that you can participate in these events, in most instances each event will be available to all the formats.
The events will use a variety of different map formats ranging from conventional orienteering maps, OpenOrienteeringMap maps or OS maps.

'No Results' Routegadget events

These events will be set up in Routegadget
You can select an Event, upload a GPS file, manually enter your time to complete and therefore share your results with others.
You will also be able to print off a paper map of the course, details will be in the table below.

The following 'no results' Routegadget events have been set up:

  1. Lockdown Cloughfold 1
  2. Lockdown Maprun Rstall Two

MapRunF events

These events make use of the MapRunF App on a mobile phone. Your phone will beep & vibrate when you get to the controls site.
Our events can be found in the UK/Lancashire folder on the Maprun server.
You can either navigate using the map on your mobile phone or print off a paper map.
Once you have completed your run your results will get automatically uploaded to a server and you can download your GPS track to then upload into the corresponding Routegadget event as described above.

An overview of using MapRunF can be found here.
