A set of virtual courses using the MapRunF app. This can be downloaded from your AppStore (links are here).
Instructions of how to download the course and the PIN to access it are printed on each map. It is well worth printing the map rather than going by the phone screen as the latter can have slight variances in the placement of controls. A guide to printing is here.
All courses are run at your own risk. The long courses involve sections of urban streets so are not recommended for unaccompanied under-16s.
The easy courses are roughly TD2 or Yellow standard, which means they can all be completed by following paths and other obvious linear features and that all controls are at obvious features.
The hard courses are roughly TD3/4 or Orange/Light Green standard, which means they will need some navigation away from obvious linear features and that controls will often be minor features.
