£ You can complete each course at any time during the time window shown for each event.
This is usually two weeks, although sometimes slightly more to include additional weekend days.
£ Each event will have a choice of 'Long' (roughly 5km) and 'Short' (roughly 2.5km) courses.
All details including the course maps (for you to print at home) will be provided through the links above when they are ready.
There will be no orienteering markers on the ground.
We will use the 'MapRun' App to check you have visited all control points correctly, and record the time you take.
MapRun will keep a 'live' overall results list so you can compare your time to everyone else's.
We will also compile series results with the best 4 of 8 events to count.
£ As these are 'virtual' races, entry is free courtesy of DFOK, LOK, MV and SLOW orienteering clubs.
