National Mall Virtual MapRun

We’ve successfully brought our second Distributed GPS Orienteering event to conclusion – this time at the US National Capitol Mall over the Thanksgiving holiday period.
Over the two-week period we had 45 starts.
To see details and tracks, head over to MapRun Route Gadget: Some shout outs for our volunteers who made this happen:
Our course designer was Karla Hulett, who worked from Gary Smith’s updated map of the National Mall to bring us these really fun tours of the area.
Greg Lennon served as our registrar, and continuously revised the QOC front page to ensure this event did not fall off the front page while the event was still in progress.
Mike Newman led the permitting effort and coordination with the National Park Service to ensure our event fit within their policies.
This event was a privilege and pleasure to serve as Meet Director – Thank You!
