Well done to you for the race (must be annoyed by that second). I chickened out khmmm I mean made a conscious decision that despite having entered, after all it did not make sense to drive 4,5 hours for a half hour run in the rain. Having now also looked at the courses on Routegadget I think I made the right decision, there does not seem to be too much challenging in there and seems like it was mostly pure running.
There weren't many route choices I'm afraid as the area was sort of restricted by the middle. I would at least put # 8 on the other side of the fence.
I would have planned a sprint race ;)
