MapRun Urban League 2024
  • A series of 10 informal Street Orienteering events based in towns around North Wiltshire.
  • Each event will offer 3 courses (Short/Medium/Long).
  • Courses can be completed using the MapRun App or by finding clues at the control sites marked on the maps. The clues will be street furniture e.g. number on lamp post, hydrant, number of bollards etc.
  • Your league position will be determined by your best 6 results in a single course class (i.e. S, M or L).

    Short/Medium/Long Courses
    You will be sent details for all 3 courses in advance of when the Event Window opens.
    (Map files to print off yourself and MapRun codes)


  • You can choose which course you want to run in each event, but to be competitive in a league you should stick to just one course class.
  • Courses follow roads and paths or cross areas with public access.
  • All controls are visible/on public land DO NOT TRESPASS.
    (The Open Orienteering Map may show the area as “white” so private land. But if it is obviously an open park you may consider it as such. You should use your own discretion considering the other users and owners of the land.)
  • Be courteous to other road and path users
  • If competing using just paper clues the coordinator relies on your honesty for the time you took
  • For those running with MapRun if you believe you visited a control and it did not register let the coordinator know and if they agree your result will be corrected!
  • Where you do a course but end up being disqualified (either from straying into OOB areas or where you miss a control or for any other reason) you will be credited with 1 point for starting the event! If you do more than 6 events in the series then this will make little difference.
  • If you do the course having planned it (or checked all controls for the planner), It will be considered that you ran it non-competitively so if you look at the event your time will be recorded correctly but you are awarded only 1 point. If you do more than 6 events in the series then this will make little difference!
  • Entry Fees
    You can enter all of the events up front at a discounted rate of £25 (Senior BO affiliated) / £35 (Senior unaffiliated) / £12.50 (Junior).
    Select the first option on the Entry Form and do not enter the events individually.

    Single Event Fees
    Senior BO affiliated: £3.50
    Senior unaffiliated: £4.50
    (Seniors who are not members of British Orienteering incur an additional £1 fee to cover increased levies)

    Junior: £1.75
    (Juniors are under 21 on 31st December)

    You do not have to enter all of your chosen events at the same time, but it reduces our costs if you do.
    Event Information

    EVENT WINDOWS

  • All events will be open for a 13 day window (Tuesday-Sunday).
  • Course details will be sent out on the Sunday before the window opens.
  • If you have not entered by then, late entries will be accepted while the event is displayed, but the coordinator may not be able to send out the details during the week so you may have a very limited time to participate in the event.
