MapRun and Permanent O courses

Despite the new lockdown measures, orienteering is still very much open for everyone to enjoy!  Even though we can’t run the organised events, you can still use MapRun and Permanent Orienteering courses for individual exercise. Obviously, we recommend you follow government guidance on travelling for exercise.

We have Virtual Orienteering Courses available using the MapRunF app, and will add more soon.  Basic instructions on how to use the app are here: MapRun instructions

Forestry England run Permanent Orienteering Courses from Birches Valley Visitor Centre on Cannock Chase (there are currently White, Yellow and Orange courses available – Light Green closed at the moment for forestry operations) – details here:
We now also have MapRunF enabled for these Permanent courses – you’ll find them under ‘Staffordshire’ / ‘Birches Valley’ on the app.

Please note as will most MapRun challenges these events are not formally organised or insured via British Orienteering. Therefore you take part at your own risk, including any 3rd party liabilities.
