Pre Event Info

The Hydrant Trophy will be presented to the winner on the night.

Additional trophies to reward Improved Performance and Consistency will also be awarded. You don't necessarily have to be at the top of the league to win either of these ...

Score event with 40 or 60 minute time limit.

Venue: The Conservative Club, 23 Buxton Rd, High Lane, Stockport SK6 8DR

Register 6.00 to 7.00pm. Starts 6.30 to 7.30pm. Fee £4/£2.

The event will be a MapRun event, enabling use of the MapRun app on your phone or the MapRunG app on to your watch. 

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 at our NSL Maprun events, a traditional paper-based backup will be available for those who request it. 

Start and Finish will be timed using SI as usual.

Registration

To enter the event, everyone should pre-enter using the MDOC Registration System  https://mdocentry.org.uk (when available). Select your course, then choose a start block. If you do not have your own SI card (dibber), a hire dibber will be allocated to you. This process will guarantee that a map is available for you on the night. 

If you wish to run as a pair, you both need to pre-enter the event.

Entries will close at midnight on Tuesday 5th March.

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.

There is now a £1 reduction for MDOC members (so £3 seniors, £1 juniors).

Special Cup Final rule

As is traditional for our end of term Cup Final and Prize-Giving event, it will offer something different from our usual format.

More details on this later ...

The winner on the night will be awarded The Hydrant Trophy, and the handicap system used ensures that everyone who takes part has a chance of winning the coveted prize.

Our annual Prize-Giving - based on performances over the 8 event league season - will take place as soon as possible after the last finisher gets back - hopefully at around 21.00. Please stay in the pub for a drink and a bite to eat after your run.

Remember

  • 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.
