Just looked at these fantastic idea really proffesionally done . I have done somthing g simular rather than carry the maps . I have photographed the explorer maps of each section had them printed out at photo box in Matt ( excellent quality and tough paper ) and I plot the route out on them

I can recommend Toughprint waterproof paper instead of laminating - I print from inkjet printer (they do a laserjet version too). I've found it really good.

Love the maps & description, Julian!

I've been doing something very similar for several years. Problems arise when the RD is very comprehensive, such as the Games 100. In this case it was impossible to fit the RD onto the relevant piece of map. If you decide to laminate the map to provide protection from the elements, this adds to the weight considerably. Use of your breakfast bag in the 100 means you only have to carry half.

Jo Miles & Julian Brown....I have had a look at the link, they are fantastic, really good idea, route description for the more complicated bits but overall following the map..genius, I know you have said they are a draft, but i know i along with a lot of others would really appreciate your efforts if you could make the draft a true liability of course!!

After the Dorset Giant a couple of folk asked us about the maps we were using, and how / why we produced them.
I've put together a few words...

Thanks, Luke and David - I hadn't spotted the details in the rules but that is the information I was looking for. Very helpful.

The event rules state the following must be carried: -

OS 1:25,000 Explorer 109, 108, OL28, 110 or
OS 1:50,000 Landranger 200, 201, 191, 192

One would assume these cover the route.

It looks like 5 Landrangers, 200, 201, 202, 191 & 192, with most of the route on the first 3

Can anyone save me some guesswork by telling me which Landranger sheets are needed to cover the Camel Teign route? (the website says it is four sheets, but doesn't say which ones). I know there will be a custom-made map in due course, but I assume that that is some time away yet and I'd like to do some preliminary homework first.
