If you didn't manage to get to any/all of the Lockdown Series and want to catch up with the MapRun Events we’ve done over the last few weeks, Then they do remain on the MapRun system in the folder: UK > Aire Valley > Lockdown Series 1> event name
To get the events information and print out the map go to the Aire website results page for that event. Look for where it says “reveal” beside pre event information. Press that and all the pre-event information will become visible and accessible.

I plan on putting together the next issue of Aire Affairs in August. Despite the continued lack of traditional orienteering, folks have been very creative in order to stay fit and in touch with our sport so please do send me your MapRun experiences as well as your 'lockdown' stories etc. Photos are always very welcome too. Send your contributions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by 21st August. Thank you!
