Summer Series Event Details and Map Downloads

All events have a time limit of 2 hours, all controls 20 points and a penalty of -10 points for each minute late. Series results will be updated at the end of each month and will be published on the MapRun Results page.

Events can be done in any order and do not need to be completed in the month they go live. However, only runs completed by Wednesday 30 September will contribute to the series results. The series result will be the combined score from all four MapRun events.
