So, how did the kids do in it?

Also, how far were the farthest controls from the start and finish? Any idea what the shortest distance to hit all 17 would be?

Cold wasn't so bad. Last I heard before I went up to school was 17 F. Very little wind and the sun came out, although clouds moved back in before we got out on the course.

A couple kids borrowed extra gloves and ski caps.

I'd say only 2.5 km to get them all, but that would require doing the northwest section (7 or 8 controls) as a single loop - pretty tough by memory... Although most of the older kids (Alex, Jamie, Nathan) had run in this area once or twice before.
