Follow this link for an introduction to MapRun Navigation Challenges.


Preston Park is on the east side of the A135 on the northern edge of Eaglescliffe.  Click here to see the location of the main entrance.  The postcode is TS18 3RH.

You should be able to park in the main Preston Park car park.  Please note that the Preston Park gates are open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the summer.

The Start is on a small path just north of the main entrance to Preston Park, where the path goes into the trees.  The What3words reference is ///enlarge.tensions.trappings.


There are public toilets near the Preston Park cafe, which is near the eastern end of the main car park.  If the toilet block is still closed when you visit, look for portaloos nearby.


>>   Intermediate2.7 km     45m climb    19 controls
>> Beginners North   1.8 km     30m climb    15 controls
>> Beginners South1.7 km     30m climb    14 controls

In the MapRun6 app, Select Event and look for UK / Cleveland / Stockton / Preston Park xxxxx, where xxxxx is Intermediate, Beginners North or Beginners South.

The competition area is suburban parkland adjoining the River Tees.  It includes open grassed areas, paths, water features, small wooded areas and several buildings.

Paper maps

If you'd prefer to use a paper map rather than the one on your smartphone (which is going to be quite small and can be tricky to see in bright sunlight) you can download a PDF copy of the map from the Go Orienteering web site and print it off at home.
Note: On the Go Orienteering web site, add the relevant map to your basket and then go through the checkout process.  You won't be charged anything.

If you don't have a suitable printer, Phill Batts is offering a map printing service.


You can access the results via the MapRun Console.  Open the menu (three horizontal lines at the top left hand corner of the window), select Leader Board, and then filter by Preston Park.  (You might need to set the Days History to a large number first.)
