Event #5 at Francis King is this year's final event of the Determinator Series. Our insurance requires that anyone participating in these events must have signed a membership waiver (see link below) before running. Because of this, the final event requires a 4 digit numeric passcode to run. We will email this passcode to all existing club members. If you are an existing member and do not have the passcode, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll email you the code. Thank you for your cooperation.
*** IMPORTANT Waiver Info *** : You must be a club member and have signed a waiver to participate. If you have already signed a waiver at a previous event in 2020 then no action is needed. If you are not a current paid member for 2020, please register online using the Zone4 link here : https://zone4.ca/register.asp?id=24135
Membership is free for first timers and $5 per year for returning members.
Determinator #5 (Final event of the series)
Location : Determinator #5 will be located at Francis King Park. This is a heavily forested map, and GPS may be less accurate. The course has been well vetted however and all controls should punch correctly despite the forest.
When : Downloadable map will be posted here on Canada Day Wednesday July 1st - or contact us email@example.com to request a printable PDF copy via email. We will post results after one week and release the next map. *We will leave the course open until July 12th and then tally final results.
Format : For this FINAL determinator event, you visit all the controls in order and do not skip one!
We are using the "MapRunF" app for iPhone or Android. MapRunF uses GPS to detect your location and virtually punch the controls. The app will automatically mark the control control point as completed and make a loud audible beep.
There are two ways you can enjoy this virtual orienteering course:
#1 - Print a map at home and use the MapRunF app to beep when you reach a control point. This is the closest to real orienteering. The printable map is posted on this page - please download and print a copy if you want to run with a map.
#2 - Use MapRunF as the map and follow along on the app as you run. Your current GPS position is not shown on the map but it will beep when you reach a control and show it as completed in green.
Here are the steps :
1. Download MapRunF from the App Store / Google Play Store (make sure to download MapRunF, not MapRun)
2. If prompted, enter your name, year of birth, etc.
3. Click "Events Near Me" if you are near Francis King, or click "Select Event -> Canada -> BC -> Victoria
4. Select the "2020 Determinator 5 Full" course
5. Click "Go to Start"
6. Run through the Start Triangle on the map to start!
7. Visit each control using either a printed map or the MapRunF app as the map. The app will beep as you hit each control.
To finish, run through the Finish Circle. Your results will be saved automatically and you can see other runners results.
**** REMEMBER TO GET EVERY CONTROL IN ORDER! Determinator #5 is the FINAL event and you DO NOT SKIP ONE CONTROL!
**** Please Note : When moving at high speed GPS becomes less accurate - you may find that you have to slow down at a control in order for the app to register your correct location. There are a few controls that are pickier than others. If you simply cannot get a control to punch, please fire us an email and we'll make sure to manually adjust your results.
