Using Maprun:

These courses are available in the smartphone (GPS) orienteering app, Maprun app. To find out more visit 

To use, open the relevant course in the app.  Links and QR codes are in the table above.  Once you are near the start point, activate the course in the app by tapping ‘Go to Start’. Once you pass this point, the app will beep, and should beep as you pass all subsequent controls (nb within a radius of around 10m potentially; it’s not 100% precise).  Make sure you pass the Finish to complete the course.
