Missing your regular Parkrun during the pandemic?
Try our SmartRun – you can take part at any time to suit yourself
So what do you need?
How does it work?
For a more detailed, written version of the above (including how you can post a track using a GPS watch if you prefer), download our ‘How to SmartRun’ notes here.
There are three levels to choose from – ‘SmartRun’ which uses a set path only route, ‘SmartRun Challenge’ where you have route choices to make as to which path to take and ‘SmartRun Adventure’ which will take you off the paths and into the hidden corners. When you’ve mastered the first level move on up to the next one or if you prefer to keep it simple then have a go at one of a similar standard but in a different location. Lots of possibilities.
If you want to know more about the maps, and the fun to be had using them take a look at this video from British Orienteering YouTube link It relates to Permanent Orienteering Courses (which our Adventure level SmartRun courses use) and has a nice simple explanation of how to use the map
Send us your feedback by emailing MVSmartRun@gmail.com. If there’s a demand for it we can set up further courses of the same standard for you to have a go at. Likewise if you have any problems drop us a line and we’ll be happy to help you out
We hope you enjoy your SmartRun and will be back for another go. More courses at other locations will be added as the weeks go by so bookmark this site or follow us on social media for updates @MVSmartRun on Twitter and @MVOrienteeringClub on Facebook
