Suitable as training for experienced orienteers only*, the three hardest courses from the event held here in May 2019 are available to run as "virtual" courses, in your own time and at your own risk. The MapRunF app is used to record control visits and timings using your phone's GPS, after which you can compare your results to others online.

*If you're looking for something better suited to beginner/intermediate orienteers, you might like the permanent courses at Crickley Hill Country Park (just south of Leckhampton), Pittville Park (Cheltenham), Gloucester Park (Gloucester) or High Meadow (Symonds Yat, Forest of Dean). There are also lots of "MapRun courses" which are mostly in urban areas and involve visiting as many checkpoints as you can in 1 hour - these are all listed on the MapRun Gloucestershire website

The maps for the event were printed on A3 paper, but as most people don't have an A3 printer the maps available for download here come as two A4 sheets per course. Make sure you've downloaded both pages for your course before you set off!

For full details, including the exact location and where to find the courses in the MapRunF app, see the Leckhampton Hill 2019 courses page on MapRun Gloucestershire (or from the "Courses" page, you can find these courses in the Forest Orienteering Training section).

For more information, especially if you've not used the MapRunF app before, check out the rest of the MapRun Gloucestershire website... Here you'll find a Getting Started guide, the leaderboard for these courses and details of any upcoming events on nearby MapRunF courses.
