Plan a course and put a map of the course at each control. At the starting point, the runner memorizes the route to go to control 1. Then at 1, he memorizes the route to go to 2. He has to select only the essential elements to find the control.
- Plan a star course, or small loops to make the exo easier
- Plan a score around the start point. Leave the map on the start. Be careful to leave a limited time for memo (10 seconds?). The purpose is to reproduce what we do during a race, not to test our memory capacity.
- Avoid planing legs, which can only be done with a compass
- The memo map attached to the control must be able to turn for orientation
Plan a course. The instruction is never stop running.
=> adapt your speed to be able to read your map at the same time
=> memorise as much information as possible each time you read the map
=> if you have not anticipated correctly, you continue to run near the control to decide where you are going, but you never walk
- you are only allowed to stop at the controls
- you have someone behind you who counts how many times you stop.
This is a quiz to do during a jog. It trains you to stabilise your gaze for map reading and to understand contour.

Nathalie still does not have the answers. But you can argue if you don’t agree with each other, and that’s also another exercise!
