Halstead - Autumn 20 PXAC
New to MapRun? -> Please see the introduction page here
Introduction to this course
Another new MapRun is ready for you to run - this time in Halstead. This is very similar to the long course we ran during the Summer/Autumn series - one of the controls has been moved - so make sure you take the new map! It is advisable to use the paper map - as it has additional paths included, which wont show on the mobile map.
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!

Parking is available at the playing fields
Start and Finish
The ‘Start’ & ‘Finish’ are just on the playing field next to the car park.
Controls and Course Length
Course type - Linear, start & finish on Courtauld playing fields.
Course length 6.8km (point to point) - 17 controls + Start/Finish - all of the controls (except number 1) are nearby to a fire hydrant - but of course they are all virtual and you will hear the 'beep'.

Some roads may not have pavements – so take extra care.
Participants take part at their own risk.
