Braintree South - Autumn 20 PXAC
New to MapRun? -> Please see the introduction page here
Introduction to this course
This is a BRAND NEW course set up especially for MapRun. The course measures 5.2km long from point to point, but the optimum route is closer to 7.5km with 90m of climb.
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!

The start & finish is in Marshalls Park, London Road, Braintree CM7 2AS.
The Marshalls Park car park is free but fairly small. If full, you could park at a suitable place on the south side of Tortoiseshell Way.
Start and Finish
The ‘Start’ & ‘Finish’ is within the triangle made by three small caged trees about 50m east of the car park.
