Please Note: The course has controls on either side of McCaffery Dr. This road can be very busy in the afternoons. Please be very careful if you decide to cross it. Note also, the  Zigzag.JPG symbol  on the map means you can run along side the road but not cross it. You might even think about starting later rather than earlier if possible.


a. Bring your charged up phone with MapRun6 (latest version is 6.5) installed and ready to go.
b. If, while you are out on course, you are sure you have visited a control site and can’t get MapRun to beep in acknowledgement then continue on your course and after you’ve finished submit a “Review Result (HITMO)” request using the menu.
c. If, while you are out on course, your GPS sensor goes to sleep and misses sections of your course then let the officials at the finish know (including any additional controls visited) and the results processors can consider making adjustments to the official results.

A Note About Safety: Newcastle Orienteering recommends that all competitors wear bright clothing or reflective gear throughout the season to enable drivers to see you especially if you are running near dusk. Please also take care when crossing roads and use recommended crossing points on busy roads. We also wish to remind competitors that listening to an ipod (or similar) while on course can be a distraction that may cause you to not hear an emergency warning or similar and as such are not allowed during these events for your safety.
