MapRun for Running Training

A series of MapRun courses aimed at running training are being added to OD MapRun. These urban courses use Royal Mail post boxes as control locations and use the much simplified OOMaps - rather than proper orienteering maps - making these courses more accessible for both less experienced orienteers and runners.. 

All of these courses are Score courses where you need to decide the order that the controls should be visited in - there is no fixed control order.

With a standard Score course the aim is to collect as many controls as you can but within a time limit (typcially 45 or 60 minutes) & with penalties applied if you run over the time limit. Points are awarded for each control visited and results are based on the points collected. You must start from the marked start/finish point.

With Scatter score courses you have to visit all the controls shown on the map and results are based on total time taken. These OD Scatter courses also allow for a "Start Anywhere" which means that the first control that a runner visits becomes the Start and Finish control for their run. Also remember that if you start at one of the controls out on the course, the original marked start/finish becomes a control that you need to visit..
