Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership, in association with the Irish Orienteering Association is working to develop Orienteering and Virtual Orienteering across Kilkenny. We have developed permanent courses and mapped many areas. Our aim is that schools, community groups, families and individuals will try out this exciting, inclusive sport.  We encourage you to use MapRun to navigate these courses.

MapRun6 is an IOS/Android Virtual Orienteering app that provides GPS punching and timing for orienteering courses.

There are a number of virtual orienteering courses in Kilkenny that can be used by the public at any day or time.

There are no controls to be put out and results are uploaded automatically. All you need is a smart phone with the MapRun-6 App installed and a printout of the orienteering course you are completing. Please click on the link below for a detailed description on how to use MapRun-6.

There are five Permanent Orienteering Courses in Kilkenny

With thanks to IOA Development Officer Andrew Cox for developing these courses in Kilkenny.
