Mornington Peninsula MapRun Challenge – Sundays, April-December 2021

Brand new in 2021 – the Mornington Peninsula MapRun Challenge!

There’s one event each month, from April to December, on Sundays.  Be ready for a mass start at 10am. Please bring a phone so you can check in with the Services Victoria QR code.

Using a supplied paper map with 20 control points marked, and the smartphone app MapRun6, you will spend one hour navigating your way around a different Mornington Peninsula location.  Choose a course for Runners or Power Walkers.

There is no requirement to pre-enter.  Meet at the advertised Start location, register and pay your $5 entry fee.  Fire up MapRun6 on your phone, or MapRunG on your bluetooth-enabled watch.  Collect a map, and start at 10am.

Choose your own route to collect controls; the points values vary, so plan carefully to maximise your score – and don’t be late back, or you’ll lose those hard-won points!  MapRun will ‘beep” at each control, and will keep track of your score, time, distance, and pace. At the end, upload your result to the Leaderboard, see your result compared to others, and check the GPS tracks to see the best routes.

Overall scores are tallied to determine the Challenge winners at the end of the series.
