About this event
Why not take on a new challenge? Come and join us for a series of smartphone-based events centred on the Derby parks! These training sessions are accessible for all as the score format allows you to choose how many controls to collect within the hour.
You will need a fully charged smartphone with downloaded MapRun app (clickable links below), suitable high vis clothing for pounding the parks and roads and a headtorch.
Why not invite your friends and relatives to get involved with the series. Help will be on-hand as the club has plenty of experienced MapRunners to get you started!
After the event, why not stay around for post-run catchup and chat, and let us know how you got on? See our Series page for the other events and the post-run social venues.
