Event Mapping

  • Teams will get two full sets of maps which will be A3 in size and have the control points overprinted onto them, with the aid of the route book which will contain all relevant route information teams will have to plot their route between control points except in some cases where we will have a mandatory route already marked.
  • Waterproofing of main race maps is essential and is the teams responsibility
  • Stationary to prepare route on map is needed. Different coloured pens, tape, scissors etc.
  • Maps will not be replaced if team misplaces maps
