Shirley, Southampton


Thu 12th Dec 2019



A 45-minute score format with the option to use a smartphone for notification when you're at one of the "virtual controls". A surprise Christmas score challenge will also be available! Afterwards, we'll head to Santo Lounge for a post run social.

Registration in advance is required, see link:

Location: Malborough Road Car Park, Shirley, Southampton, SO15 3ND - free after 18:00

Date: Thursday 12th December 2019

Time: 18:50 for a 19:00 start

Social: 20:00 in Santo Lounge (feel free to just come for the social if you’d prefer)


  1. Please wear high vis
  2. Bring a head torch
  3. Smartphone with MapRun app installed - recommended

MapRun app available from the Google Play store for Android phones and the App Store for iPhones. The map will be released on the night. The app uses your phone's GPS (and can be combined with a paper map) to give positive confirmation when you get to the controls. 

It is also the day of the General Election (I had booked the day first!) so please remember to exercise your democratic right to vote!
