only 300m shorter than a brown?

We do things differently to everyone else...........Brown: 6.0km and Blue 5.8km

I assume since there was so much beach running, I had 1.7km of the Brown and 1.3km of the Blue done by the time i reached the main dunes.

So the blue course had more time in the dunes (orienteering?) than the brown?

Brown = 22c (19c on the dunes)

Blue = 20c (17c on the dunes)

It is a small area, and its not as if its a championship race either.
Lot to be said for a club who is willing and able to have an event on every weekend or close enough

I completely agree with all that - a lot of good juniors coming out of BOC, and it would be hard to ignore the quantity of events they have access to.

I did find it funny when you said though it was 4.5km in the dunes for the blue, vs 4.3km for the brown.
Probably no need for both courses, but the organisers are happy to do it, and that's the main thing.
