MapRun allows you to navigate round a course, using the GPS on your smartphone or suitable running watch to recognise that you have been to the various controls (checkpoints) on your course.

So what do you need, apart from your usual kit (clothes, shoes, compass)?  You will need a smartphone or watch with the MapRun app installed.

Click here for a short guide to using TVOC’s MapRun courses. If you would like to help make some new courses, and we would be delighted if you would, then please refer to the TVOC Setters’ Guide.

NOTE that you take part in any MapRun events as an individual activity and not a club activity, and therefore will not be covered by British Orienteering’s public liability insurance.

For a list of some our events click here – all events can be found on the app via Select Event > United Kingdom > Thames Valley. But to pre-print a map you will want to visit the page above.
