How to do the events
–with the MapRun app (event
will be posted has been posted)
(Don’t click ‘go to the start’ until you are there. Go to the control locations even if you don’t get a beep.)
–by looking for the ribbons at each control location.
(short white ribbons, mostly with the control number written on, some with also a red one;
some may be missing)
–time yourself with your watch/phone
-or just go for a nice walk
Mapper and event organizer: Geraint
Both maps drawn using sprint symbols, but to different scales (eg larger scales for shortest courses)
Not all trees will be shown, as they are being planted faster than Geraint can map them.
Warning to families: Glengarry has a really nice playground.
See you Saturday!
