Braintree and Bocking - Autumn 20 PXAC
New to MapRun? -> Please see the introduction page here
Introduction to this course
Another new MapRun is now available - 'Braintree Bocking PXAC'. This is the Long Course which we ran during our Summer & Autumn Series - perhaps you missed this one, or fancy having another go. The navigation should be fairly straightforward, but sometimes the GPS can take a while to keep up with you, so ensure you have ‘Display my location’ ticked in the settings – and you can check exactly where you are at all times.
Remember, this is a ‘fun’ event!
