What you need
To complete a MapRun6 course you need a charged smartphone that is compatible with the App – most modern phones are but if you want to check you can download MapRun6 from the App or Play store.
You may want to use a compass, if you don’t have one the club has a limited number they can lend.
This is an open parkland so there is no requirement for full leg cover – please dress appropriately for running and wear running shoes.
Preston park facilities are currently closed, but they have provided porta-loos until these re-open. CLOK will not provide additional toilets for this event.
Preston Park is dog friendly – please abide by park rules if bringing your dog.
Covid-19 and Safety
Orienteering is an outdoor, naturally socially-distanced sport. You should be relatively safe when you are out on your run, however, there is a risk of Covid-19 transmission during the pre and post-run activities. Please do not attend this event if you have Covid-19 symptoms. In accordance with Government guidance, if you have Covid-19 symptoms you should stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
CLOK always encourages participants to run with a whistle and use this in case of emergency. This is not a remote area.
British Orienteering provides Public Liability insurance cover for all individuals taking part in our organised events and activities.
If you have any questions about the Find Your Way project or the event at Preston Park please contact our Club Development Officer; Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
