The Maprun app allows you to use your smartphone to enjoy orienteering at any time. We have set up MapRun courses all across Glasgow, which you can go and run right now, with more new ones being added. The only difference from a “traditional” course is that there are no physical markers on the ground. Instead, your phone tracks your location as you run and vibrates or buzzes to confirm when you’ve reached each control point on the course.
Course lengths and climbs confirmed Saturday 13th August 2022.
Start times checked 7:30am Thursday 11th August 22.
Course 6 start times added for Races 1 and 2 ; Race 3 shall remain open for choice between 14:00:00 and 14:20:00.

Oringen is the world's largest orienteering event, taking place in Sweden each summer over five days. As a local alternative, you are once again invited to take part in a a Maprun challenge around Glasgow's subway The Clockwork Orange over five days instead. Each course starts and finishes at a subway station, so it is easy to get to and from; between the stations, you have to visit a number of controls — but it's up to you which ones you choose!
Orienteering is an exciting adventure sport suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.
