MapRun

Braintree and Bocking - Autumn 20 PXAC


New to MapRun? -> Please see the introduction page here

Introduction to this course
Another new MapRun is now available - 'Braintree Bocking PXAC'. This is the Long Course which we ran during our Summer & Autumn Series - perhaps you missed this one, or fancy having another go. The navigation should be fairly straightforward, but sometimes the GPS can take a while to keep up with you, so ensure you have ‘Display my location’ ticked in the settings – and you can check exactly where you are at all times.
Remember, this is a ‘fun’ event!

As with any street orienteering this requires participants to cross roads and you are asked to take due care and attention at all times.
There may be dog walkers, cyclists and residents using the pavements and footpaths – be aware and give them priority.
Some roads may not have pavements – so take extra care.

Participants take part at their own risk.
