MapRun Social

Just a reminder that this week sees the last in the current MapRun League events - more details here

One thing in particular to take note of is the harsh penalty to being over time on this one (30 points for each minute over) - so time management will be key to getting a decent score!

If you would like to run this one as a social, then we can meet up near the start at 6:30pm Thursday evening and retreat to the Fox and Hounds afterwards for a pint and a bite.  That's at 3 Winchester Rd, Fair Oak, Eastleigh SO50 7GE.

Hope to see you tomorrow evening!

Westwood event - change to entry dates

Please note that we're having to go firm on map numbers for printing earlier than expected. If you enter the event after Sunday 23 May we can't guarantee you a waterproof map - you may end up with an inkjet printed map and will need to bring your own plastic bag! This also means we can't have EOD as previously planned.

MapRun League and Socials

We are now into the penultimate week of the MapRun League. You have until Sunday 23rd to have a go at the Winchester MapRun. Steve Pullen the Planner has set us a lovely course around the old part of the city and the water meadows. He has also had a go already and set us a total of 480 points to beat! 

This Thursday 20th at 18:30, we are organising a social to do the MapRun and pub. Meet at The Queen Inn pub to do the MapRun (it is also the start/finish) and then we will get some tables for a refreshment and debrief. Pub details here:

We plan on doing the same the following week for the Stoke Park Woods social. Stoke Park Woods MapRun event number 8 available 22nd May to the Bank Holiday Monday 31st May. 

The League tables have been updated to cover the first 6 weeks. It will be between Nick and David for the win with both having 3 wins and 3 second places.  It looks like Karen will be the top woman unless Christine has two amazing last runs! 20 orienteers now have the 5 or more required scores to count, with a further 10 maprunners on 4 scores. Remember it is your best 5 scores from the 8 events so definitely all to play for over the last two events. Full League table is here:

We hope you have enjoyed the League and a chance to get out orienteering again. Hopefully see you at one of the socials or at the Westwood event on Saturday 29th May.
