MapRun official website page 

Start and finish are near the parking lot along Gothard St. 


Upon registering and accepting the waiver, you will be emailed a link to the map file. All of the maps are together in one PDF file. The PIN that you need for the MapRun app is printed on each map.


Be sure to select and load the event in the app before you arrive. Once you are there, you will be able to run the course if it is already loaded, but will not be able to download the course if you have a bad connection.

Similarly, make sure that your results upload after you finish. Because of Map and GPS inaccuracy, it is important that you use the printed map for navigation. The circles on the map in the app may not be perfectly accurate, but it will punch properly when you are in the printed circle.


Anyone who completes any course from this event between the dates of May 18-26, 2024 will be counted as a World Orienteering Week participant and will receive a certificate for their accomplishment.
