https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=au.com.fne.maprun or

Within the app, register and go to Event List, then scroll down to UK/Derwent Valley/Duffield and choose the only course Duffield Map Run. When you arrive, press “Go to Start” for the screen above and listen to our safety briefing at 7pm.
You have 60 minutes to find as many of the 30 controls as possible. Most are on tarmac, but a few on potentially muddy paths. Your phone acts as a dibber, pinging when you get to a control. We'll give you a paper map, so you can keep your phone safe in a pocket or bum-bag. There's a one-hour time limit on the course, and we'll go for a drink afterwards at the White Hart. Note that with MapRun, you can run the course again at a later date.
