Note: there may be other sporting groups using the fields please be respectful.

On 21st of March there will be a demonstration event for the use of smart phone technology in orienteering. This is no cost to run in this event as this is a demonstration event.

We will be rerunning the carrington map from last year (same start finish location) - only one control has been dropped if you decide to bring your map (3C is now considered in out of bounds) to use in conjunction with the map on your smart phone.

This is a PDF of the map that will be used for this demonstration. Please bring your own map (or use the one on the phone)


You can download the app Maprun for both Andriod and iOS (Andriod v41.2 and iOS 7.0.1 or later). Please download the app before you arrive.

A major difference you will notice is that all the controls are worth the same number of points and penalties apply for being late.

While we are hoping most will have a go on the day the map will be available to be run anytime on the app for the near future.

We will be collecting feedback on how easy/accurate it was on the day and by survey later on.

Here’s a quick overview of what to do
• Tap Name and enter your details
• Tap Select Event (or Reload Event if you’ve already downloaded the Event)
• Choose the event from the NSW event list - Carrington
• Tap GotoStart to see the map
• Then when you are ready, press Start GPS and go to the Start Triangle. Your time starts when you hear the “beep” at the Start.
• Your time finishes when you hear the “beep” at the Finish (avoid the start/finish triangle on your run as you may finish early)
