Map / Terrain

ISSOM Sprint Spec updated November 2023 by Terry 1:4,000. Paper size is 32cm x 37cm. The map for Race 3 is mapped according to the ISSprOM 2019-2 sprint mapping standard. As such, the certain features are forbidden to cross, and any competitors seen crossing them will be disqualified. Please check the list of uncrossable features here.

An artificial barrier will also be used, marked on the map with a thick purple line and purple hashing, as shown below. On the ground this will be marked by a chalk line and a sign, and be monitored by marshals, but will not fully block passage. Anyone crossing the artificial barrier will be disqualified. Please read your map carefully!
