Launching now in HB - MapRunner App

Category: General  |  Date: Mon 27 Apr 2020  |  Author:

This is an exciting new activity for Hawke's Bay orienteering families.

Print your own maps* then walk, jog, run, scooter or bike around the courses. Give it a go - its hours of free fun and exercise to do at any time of the day ( do whenever you like, at a time to suit you ).

Everyone can have their own map*.      

Use your phone with the MapRunner app to confirm that you have got to each control-point correctly and to record your progress around the course.

Here are some tips and a selection of maps to get you going ....
