Pre Event Info

Venue: Whaley Bridge Bowling Club, 43 Buxton Road, Whaley Bridge, SK23 7HX
Important information re travel to the event and parking ...
The A5004 is blocked to cars between Whaley Bridge centre and Horwich End due to works on the railway bridge near the venue. There are a number of parking options if coming from the north - canal basin car park or on road parking as you approach the bridge. There follows a short walk under the railway bridge to the bowling club where there is ample space to leave bags. Anyone approaching from Macc (via Kettleshulme) or from Chapel can go direct to the bowling club car park which is large.
Although it looks like Old Road might allow access, linking both sides of the bridge, please do not use this route as it is for residents only, there are warning signs and we have been informed the police will be enforcing this.
The event will be a MapRun event, enabling use of the MapRun6* app on your phone or the MapRunG app on to your watch.
*There is an updated version of MapRun which, even though it is a "trial" version, is now available for download to phones. Please DO NOT be tempted to use any updated versions at the rest of this season's events.
If you are new to the system, please read the instructions on our website
and download the MapRun apps to your phone or watch. The event files will be available a few days before the event. You are strongly advised to download everything you need before you arrive at the event.
As usual, you can use paper or MapRun or both to claim your points.
There is a trivial MapRun demo if you want to check your technology before the main event.
Start and Finish will be timed using SI as usual.
Pre-registration and entry
To enter the event, everyone should pre-register using the MDOC Registration System https://mdocentry.org.uk. Choose a start block, and hire a dibber if required. This process will guarantee that a map is available for you on the night.
If you are running as a pair, you both need to pre-enter the event.
Entries will close at midnight on Sunday 5th February.
We would prefer to avoid entry on the day (EOD) but a limited number of maps may be available. Please do NOT rely on it.
On the night registration will be based in the pub. You will need to pick up your personalised clue sheet and a dibber (if requested) and pay for your entry. Our preferred system of payment is by contactless card - using the Zettle system. Cash payments will be possible, but not encouraged.
Please note that all runners will receive a map, and will be charged for it (£4 senior, £2 junior); additional maps (for people running in pairs) will be charged at £2.
- you don't have to use MapRun - you can just fill in the answers on your cluesheet,
- in the (unlikely ?) event of a missing "beep" at a control, MapRunners MUST record a written response on their clue sheet.
- you get points if you get a beep or if you write the answer down. Simples.
- photos of typical control sites can be seen on the Typical NSL Controls webpage,
- final details - including a copy of the Safety Notice, and the safety map will be emailed to all pre-entries after entries have closed - they will not be available at registration.
