Smartphone OrienteeringUsing the MapRunF app

Map Run phone app

MapRunF is an app which allows you to use your smartphone to enjoy orienteering without needing to set up physical control points on the ground. There are now MapRunF courses set up all across Glasgow which you can go and run right now, with more new ones being added.

Using MapRunF, you can run an orienteering course using either the map on your phone screen or a paper version; the only difference from a “traditional” course is that there are no physical markers on the ground. Instead, the phone tracks your location as you run and vibrates or buzzes to confirm when you’ve reached each control point on the course.

New to Orienteering?

Visiting A Control Marker

Orienteering is a sport that combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.
