Where to Go?


  • Black = Virtual Course;
  • Blue = Permanent Course;
  • Red = Virtual (without app) and MapRunF (with app).

Please note, the Government Guidelines must be obeyed at all times, in particular those relating to travel, physical distancing and quarantining of those with symptoms. For more information, please see our dedicated Covid-19 page.

Note: Many of these areas also have longer or more difficult permanent courses as well. These can be found on the websites for the areas themselves. Some also have an “all-controls” map so you can make up your own courses.

Safety and Disclaimer

Please note that you undertake these courses at your own risk. DIY courses are not manned. While most courses are in lower-risk public locations such as parks, some take place on open mountainside in remote terrain. It is your responsibility to ensure you are properly equipped and carry safety equipment appropriate to the location. Such items can include: waterproof jacket, hat, gloves, fully charged mobile phone, footwear with good grip and a whistle. Be aware that not all areas have phone coverage. Leave details of your plans with a family member or friend. If in doubt to your abilities, start with a lower-risk location and/or attend an organised event.

Availability of a map does not give you right to trespass on private property. You must gain permission of the landowner.

Download of maps is deemed acceptance of these conditions.

Warning: Do not leave valuable items visible in parked cars when you are out on a course.
