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. Both courses involve sections of urban streets so are not recommended for unaccompanied under-16s.

These are score courses, with a 50-minute limit. For Short, you can visit the controls in any order. For Long, you have to choose to start with blue or red controls then swap when you want (but you can't swap back again).

Find out more about orienteering in Somerset by visiting the Quantock Orienteers website. We have plenty of helpful resources for newcomers and more experienced orienteers.
