Orienteering anytime using smartphone GPS with the MapRun app
MapRun is a free app that allows you to run a course without any physical infrastructure on the ground instead your position is recorded by the phones’ GPS. You can run solo anytime and your time can be compared with others. It is perfect for private fitness and technique training.
These courses have permanent markers at control points (also known as check points) with a code and an orienteering logo attached. All the controls are shown on an overprinted orienteering map that you can download from the BO website or obtain on site (see individual POC details).
