GPS Orienteering

GPS Orienteering

GPS orienteering has no infrastructure on the ground;  it’s a time trial rather than a race so you can run any course, any time you want. There are courses all over the Midlands and beyond – all you need is a smartphone and we’d recommend a printed copy of the map, though you can just use the map on the phone.  Harlequins uses the MapRun app and there is a beginners guide on how to use it.

Urban areas offer a run with a difference and less challenging navigation, with the emphasis on good route choice.  They usually use maps produced using OpenOrienteering street map format.
