The Covid-safe event held at Wythenshawe Park on Wednesday evening provided some entertaining courses, two of which ventured outside the Park courtesy of a hybrid map that combined an updated Park map with the Night Street League map of the adjoining urban area.
Results, including the routes taken, can be found at http://maprunners.weebly.com/results.html

The next of our Summer MapRun Series offers plenty of fun for orienteers and runners, both junior and more seasoned. The map is a hybrid, which for some courses includes both Park and Urban terrain. The Park is covered by a standard orienteering map and the urban area by a Night Street League style map. For those of you who have done one but not the other, now is the time to do them both on the same run.
Please take a moment to read two new interviews from our junior members - Emily and Ben. The interviews are on the Juniors page of the MDOC website. I hope that you will be impressed by their achievements so far.
