Virtual Orienteering Courses

The MapRun orienteering app allows you to take part in “Virtual” orienteering courses using the GPS in your smartphone (or watch) at a time convenient for yourself. You run a course using either the map on your phone screen or a paper version, and your phone will beep when you reach the correct location of each control.

The TOC will be in the area that EckO are using for training/coaching and an event for that particular month. The courses (usually 2) will be available for the whole month.
