MapRun Courses

These courses can be run at any time using the Maprun smartphone app or even without a phone. There are no markers in place but your phone gps will confirm each site. For some there is no map on the phone. Download and print the maps and instructions from the links below. After your run you can upload your result (including from a Garmin rather than a phone) and compare with other runners. And you can load a result to DVO Routegadget.
