  2. Download the MapRun6 app (Iphone or Android)

  3. Register yourself on the MapRun6 app (no cost, only has to be done once)

  4. Select Event --> Canada --> British Columbia --> Kimberley --> Round the Mountain 2021 Bike or Round the Mountain Run Trek or point your phone camera at the QR code on your printed map.

  5. Head to the Kimberley Nordic Centre

  6. In the app, select “Go to Start” . The course map will appear. When ready, go to the ticket kiosk.

  7. Your phone will beep (may take a few seconds) and your time will start as you pass the triangle and double circle on the map.

  8. The app works on your phone's gps and doesn't require cellular data or wifi. Your phone can be put in your pocket once you've started.

  9. Do the course in a counterclockwise direction. As you reach each control of the four points your phone will beep, recording your time.

  10. You can choose your own route between control points. There are no mandatory routes for 2021. Routes on the map indicate the race routes from previous years and are a guide should you wish to do the traditional route.

  11. Should your phone not beep at a control point, keep moving, as we can fix this after you've completed your course once your track shows you've passed that point.

  12. Return to the finish at the kiosk. Wait for your phone to beep, ending your time.

  13. Your time and track will be uploaded to the Leaderboard.
