we have been using Maprun with gay abandon in the SE. It allows us to put on regular events with small numbers of organisers and allows for a variable number of participants. There is a longevity to planned courses as they can be completed at other times after the actual event too. We built up a number of urban maps during the covid pandemic as there was time to map. Maprun allows us to use these maps with minimum of fuss. Thank you as always to Pat Healy for his base mapping skills. We have worked with a number of sports partnerships to map urban areas under the adventure sports urban initiative.
Sevo are delighted to offer you the following series of races on new maps (all within walking distance of railway stations)
October 10th Wexford town
October 17th Thurles town, County Tipperary
November 28th Double race: Enniscorthy town and nearby Vinegar hill, County Wexford
With many urban areas it suits not to put out physical controls for security reasons. Whilst not everyones cup of tea, Maprun has its faithful followers (especially garmin watch users). It can be used with an old phone too with no sim card by downloading course using wifi and then uploading afterwards...a great use for your last phone!
I hope you can make it to some of them.....
We will of course revert to the more traditional forest events with Kilbunny woods, Portlaw, Co.Waterford on the 7th November, Castlecomer, County Kilkenny on the 9th January and Forth mountain, County Wexford on the 10th April.
