EVENT - A chance to get some experience using MapRun and Sportident on one or more of the 6-shortcourse cross-country events at Jezzine Barracks. Individuals, Pairs, Families or Teams welcome!
* Sportident - This is an Orienteering electronic scoring and timing system, where we will give you a timing chip (SI Token) to attach to your finger and you will "zap" in at every CP instead of punching or writing answers. Simple to use! We will give you a map and SI token when you register for your course(s) at the Start.
* MapRun - This is a form of Orienteering that uses Smartphones for
punching and timing, avoiding the need to put flags and SI units out on the course. We need you to download the FREE MapRun App (version 7) via Google Play or the App Store (you can also download MapRunG for your Garmin), do this before you arrive and make sure you have battery left on your phone for the event ! We will give you a Map and the course code(s) to sign into the event when you arrive. Check out the website -
COURSES: All are Cross-country courses (ie you must collect the allocated checkpoints in the given order) and the courses are nice and short (as the crow flies, you may go a bit further especially if you follow the rules and don't run through garden beds - yes that's a rule and yes we will see your tracker !!) - Short and Fun !!
