Cambridge South

West Anglian Orienteering Club (WAOC) welcomes you to our Cambridge South MapRun event. There are 2 courses available.

Details

There are two different maps for each course. The results for the courses do not distinguish between the maps.
The standard maps are conventional OpenOrienteeringMap street maps.
The Mixed Up maps are copies of the normal courses with the map divided into segments and reorientated. Controls are to be run in order but you will need to find where on the sheet the next section of the map is.
Coaching points: Folding, thumbing, orientating map as well as planning ahead (try not to end up at a standstill at any point!).

Please be respectful of pedestrians, dog walkers and cyclists, and be especially careful crossing roads.

Parking

In Nightingale Recreation Ground car park or on streets nearby
