What now, at Level 1 or 2?

Event scheduling for the year starts again, post Lockdown#1, juggled around bigger events, with timing yet to be re-negotiated. We have to seek landowner permissions and find club members who are willing to help run an event. Right now, though, you can;

  • do MapRunF courses with new Start Anywhere options.

  • use the Permanent Courses. Ross Creek has just been updated and extended.

  • Use old maps of events in public spaces; Town Belt South, Tomahawk, Botanic Gardens/Signal Hill/University campus, Bethunes Gully, Balmacewan/Kaikorai, Woodhaugh, Mosgiel Flatland, Glow Worms or Port Chalmers Rogaines. Go and find something new on the maps that you have never visited before.
