Description

A cold crisp evening for a bit of O tonight...

Thank you to the staff at the Francis Newton for being so accommodating and of course to Emily for planning (wasn't it good that no matter who you were you couldn't get them all) and Ian for sorting out the map - adding the Edge, Botanics and Endcliffe on to the City map.  Also thank you to Pauline and Max for running registration and download respectively.

Results are below based on the number of controls people had visited.  Those going old school and writing answer are highlighted in yellow. To the rest - thank you for trying map run.  In general it seems far more accurate outside the city centre away from the tall buildings.  There still seems to be a few problems with GPS switching off and the odd crash but as we become more familiar with it I think this will improve.  It certainly makes collecting controls easy...

Results

If anyone is missing controls let us know and we will add them on (that especially goes for those at the bottom with 0 controls!).

The MapRun app will still register runs so if anyone wants to go out an prove that you can do them all then feel free...

The MapRun results are available hereRoutes are on Routegadget here.
