Clockwork O-Ringen 2022Maprun courses over the summer break
Oringen is the world's largest orienteering event, taking place in Sweden each summer over five days. As a local alternative, you are once again invited to take part in a a Maprun challenge around Glasgow's subway The Clockwork Orange over five days instead. Each course starts and finishes at a subway station, so it is easy to get to and from; between the stations, you have to visit a number of controls — but it's up to you which ones you choose!
Use the Maprun app to record your run. You will find all the courses in the UK > Scotland > Glasgow > St Andrew's Orienteering Club > Clockwork Oringen folder. PDFs for the different options can be found here:
