New Version of MapRun App Now Available

A new version of MapRun – MapRun6 has been released and is now available for download from your smartphone app Store. It has been released as a separate App, “MapRun6”, so that it can co-exist with MapRunF as it is progressively adopted by users. If your club has been benefitting from using MapRun then please consider making a donation towards the development and operation of the app.

To date, the development and operation of MapRun has been funded by Orienteering Australia (OA), but with increasing usage, OA are looking for Clubs to support the operation through donations. A donation of the order of 50c USD per run is being suggested to cover costs. Donations can be made via the “Donate” button on the home page of the MapRunners website , or contact Peter Effeney to provide bank details.


The latest version of the app includes several new features as well as improved performance in relation to its GPS tracking functionality. Further information about changes and upgrades available in MapRun6 are available here
