Find Your Way Activity

Virtual level event

What does this mean?

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Training events are non competitive and used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships. Virtual events are where there are no physical controls being used. Your presence at a control is registered using an App on your mobile phone, normally the free MapRun6 App.

You will hear a bleep on your mobile phone when you reach each checkpoint on the course. A whole family activity!

There is no charge and no need to register in advance. Just turn up at the main car park on the day for a new walking (or jogging, running!) experience using up to date technology.
