The Dorset 2024 Summer MapRun League and Dorset 2024 Summer League will be run & organised jointly by WSX & WIM with WSX organising 3 MapRun events and 3 physical events in April, June & August and WIM organising 3 MapRun events and 3 physical events in May, July & September. Rob Mills from WIM will act as the overall co-ordinator for the 2024 Dorset Summer MapRun League and 2024 Dorset Summer League whilst Jason Falconer from WSX will act as the overall co-ordinator and BOF liaison for the 2024 Find Your Way programme.

The Dorset 2024 MapRun Summer League will run over calendar month blocks from start of April to end of September, giving 6 events in total. 
Competitors will be able to run the course at any time in the one-month window for their result to count for the league.  The course format for all 6 events will be a 60-minute score. 
Scoring will be as previous MapRun leagues with first place getting 50 points, second place 49 points, etc.  The best 4 scores will count for the league.  Planners of league events will be awarded 49 points but only for one event in the 2024 Dorset 2024 Summer MapRun League series.  Age Graded results and league tables will also be produced.

For all the Dorset 2024 Summer MapRun League events, competitors will download and print their own maps. Maps may be downloaded from the links below

Senior competitors will be charged £15 to enter the League (6 events) whilst junior competitors (M/W20-) will be free.  Entry and payment for the league for senior competitors will be via RaceSignUp.  Senior competitors will only appear in the individual event results and league tables from when they enter the league.

League administrator Rob Mills writes...
1.  Congratulations to James and Karen for winning the overall senior male & female Open categories.
 Also congratulations to Harry (who was also 3rd senior male) and Eskarina for winning the junior male & female Open categories

2. Congratulations to Roger for winning the overall Age Graded category and well done to all the age category winners
3. A Big thank you to all the planners/organisers and everyone who helped make the 2003 Dorset MapRun League happen and be such a success.
4. A special thank you to Chris for all his time & effort behind the scenes with MapRun & Jason for co-ordinating the FYW initiative
5. I plan to write a review of the 2003 Dorset MapRun League and associated summer physical events and provide this to both WIM & WSX Committees to form the basis of discussions of what we should look to do in 2024

MapRun courses which produce results and league tables now incur levy charges from British Orienteering and we also have to pay a small charge to the MapRun organisation for keeping our files on their servers. Initially this cost was absorbed by the club, but from Summer 2023 we feel the need to pass on some of the costs to our clientele, so entry to the series, via Racesignup, is £20 for as many of the 12 planned events as you choose to compete in.  Read the competition details here.

Map files will be available for download two or three days before each new race, starting from March 29th for the April 1st event.
