MAPS AND COURSES:
START: Shubie Park Fairbanks Centre
Two courses have been created: an easy and a hard course. You must go to the controls in the correct order. Maps have been uploaded to the “Resources” tab (Maps or scroll down to the bottom of the list to "2022 Maprun Maps" - click and all map files are there.) You can download and print the maps, and run the courses on your own schedule. Do as many courses as you like!
Please Note: Control locations will NOT be flagged in any way in the terrain, however the courses will be available on MapRun 6 (or you can still use Maprun F), a smartphone app for orienteering that allows you to load the course onto your smartphone, track yourself using GPS, receive notifications when you reach each control and upload and compare your results to others who have completed the course. This app works quite well in open areas. Under tree cover, you may need to wait a few moments near the control site for the unit to pick up GPS and notify you. [If it does not register controls that you have been to, you can contact Pam James through AVOC at ValleyOrienteering@outlook.com and she may be able to add you to the results.]
The maps and courses will be available until December 31, 2022.

For those with a Garmin device, MapRunG can also be used, and you can run without your phone:
