Come and join us for this FREE MAPRUN event!
Maprun Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire offers a new dimension to running – getting you out and about and exploring the towns throughout the county and beyond. Rather than running the same route every day, challenge yourself to visit any number of checkpoint locations and return back to the starting point as quickly as you can! Our free smartphone app will automatically record each site you visit, and at the end will upload your result so you can compare your performance against everyone else. Come back again and try a different route next time to optimise your time!
Maprun has no infrastructure on the ground – all you need is a smartphone and perhaps a print of the map; it’s a time trial rather than a race so you can run any course, any time you want!
Maprun is a run where you decide the route!
We have a choice of courses at this activity. We have a linear course (get to all controls as quickly as you can - no time limit) which is around 6.5km in running distance and we have the traditional MapRun score course which follows the format below.
Speed is an advantage, but the fastest runner won’t necessarily come out on top. It’ll take smart planning to find the shortest route worth the most points.
Your route is recorded by the free Maprun app, available for Android and iPhone.
See MAPRUN Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire page for help setting yourself up and how to download the MAPRUN app.
YOU NEED TO REGISTER FOR THIS ACTIVITY VIA THE FORM BELOW. REGISTRATION IS FREE AND ENABLES US TO ENSURE THAT A MAP IS PRINTED OFF FOR YOU*. IT IS A REALLY QUICK AND EASY REGISTRATION FORM.
*The MAPRUN app is best used to record your route, controls visited and overall time and score. We recommend placing your phone in your pocket or holder and run following a paper map. It is possible to run following the digital map on screen, if you prefer this option.
