Chelmer Village - Autumn 20 PXAC
New to MapRun? -> Please see the introduction page here
Introduction to this course
Another MapRunF event has now gone live - and this is at Chelmer Village. This is the same course as we ran on Long course for the Summer/Autumn Series. Perhaps you missed this event - or want to try & improve your time? It is advisable to use the paper map - as it has additional paths included, which wont show on the mobile map.
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.
Take particular care on the unlit rough slippery paths and parkland if you are running in the dark!
Some roads may not have pavements – so take extra care.
Participants take part at their own risk.
