Solo events with MapRunF

Last Updated: Sun 22 Mar 2020

While individuals are still encouraged to go out and exercise alone (or with close family members) I am setting up some events that can be done solo using a smartphone's GPS capability. If you want to participate in this you will need to download the MapRunF App from the usual places. See instructions below on how to use the App and how to have a go at our first activity - a score event on Devil's Dyke. Please also read the following advice on behaving responsibly when participating in these activities.

Having installed MapRunF you need to enter some basic details and then navigate to the Select Event tab - find the MR UK folder and then the Sussex one. In there you will find an event labelled DD Mar20 which contains a 20 control 60 minute score event on Devil's Dyke. Although a map will come up on the screen this is not accurate enough for navigation purposes so you should download the proper map from here (high res) or here (lower res).

When you are ready to start click on "Go to start". Assuming that you have a GPS signal the timer will start when you get within a few metres of the start triangle.
