Virtual Orienteering

Last Updated: Thu 4 Jan 2024

During Covid times many clubs, including SO, set up a number of so-called virtual courses which club members could do on their own using the MapRun app. Instead of finding control flags participants used the GPS facilites of a smartphone or smartwatch to confirm that they had reached the desired locations. The courses that we set up are still available to use and links to them are listed below. In some cases the course may have expired - if you come across any of these please contact the club captain who can reset them.

Information on how to install and use MapRun can be found on this website. The original SO courses can be found in the UK/Sussex folder on the MapRun server, with other opportunities found in subfolders. For each run you can either print off a physical map of each course or use the one that will appear on your phone when you use the App. Note that as some of these courses are a few years old the terrain may have changed a bit and/or the features used may no longer exist.
