(NOT) Sprintelope is back!

Have you tried this yet?

Have you tried the Sprintelope (or near enough!) introduced especially for the unusual circumstances in which we find ourselves in 2020?   This year MapRun is being used (mostly) and instead of paper maps being available at an event on a single Wednesday evening the courses are available via MapRun or a pdf on SOA website and should be run over the course of a week. There is still a League run by Munro Leagues and there is a flexible approach to timing - see below. 

Each week there is a new event available to qualify to compete in the League. There will always be a short and a long course. The relevant week begins on a Wednesday.

At the time of writing (Monday 17th August) the current event is Caiystane and Braidburn (start in Camus Avenue). The Sprintelope MapRuns are available in MapRun in the EdinburghO folder in a subfolder called Sprintelope.
PDF copies of the maps are available on the SOA website 

If you want to take part in the Sprintelopes but don't want to use MapRun - they will accept honesty punching and timing if you email the details to:   You can download and print off the map from the SOA website link given above. Note that on the SOA website the maps are in alphabetical order but, very helpfully, each has the first word of the map name as 'Sprintelope' so you can easily find them.

Please remember to obey all current Government restrictions and please be respectful to residents.

The best place to get up to date information about (not)Sprintelopes, including the area for each week, is via their Facebook pages.

Why not have a go?
