We will be using MapRun this season after the success of our MapRun Street Orienteering Trial Series (which you can still try). You will need to bring a smartphone with the MapRunF app which will register (and beep) when you get to each control and upload your score after finishing. There is now also the option of using your Garmin watch with MapRunG on course and link back to your smartphone when finished. You will no longer need an SI stick for timing or a pen/highlighter (unless you wish to mark your map in your 2 min preparation time) as there will no longer be questions to answer at each control. 

Your best 10 event results will go toward your Series Total.

Important Note: Newcastle Orienteering recommends that all competitors wear bright clothing or reflective gear throughout the season to enable drivers to see you especially if you are running near dusk. Please also take care when crossing roads and use recommended crossing points on busy roads. We also wish to remind competitors that listening to an ipod (or similar) while on course can be a distraction that may cause you to not hear an emergency warning or similar and as such are not allowed during these events for your safety.
