Discussion: How do you want it

Is it a thing where I could go out and run 400m in each of those terrain types and report my min/k for each of those or do you want the min/k for those that I would normally run on a, say, 10k orienteering course?

Ideally data that was gone out and collected like the first way you mentioned. If you (and anyone reading this) could do 200m or 400m in those terrain types (or even one or two of them) at a "race pace" that is probably ideal, i might try get a test group from my running club too so i have a pool of data.

Looking at making a routechoice selection program as part of the research....of which running speed will obviously directly impact

Sounds similar to a program Seamus wrote, and I've seen some other similar ones out there I think.
I reckon I could give the terrains a go.

The intention is to use the principal of least cost pathway analysis but i need a cost surface...running speed in min/km so any help you could give would be appreciated.

I'd actually be quite curious to check how my speed varies in the different terrains. I guess 400m is more relevant than 200m for orienteering!

For Seamus' program he just guessed at the relative running speeds. He did have three different models of how the runners could handle climb. He took the speeds of the various terrains based on the IOF mapping guidelines, e.g. things like Green Forest is 10-20% running speed, where white is 100%

I can sort you out with some stuff.
I'll get back to you

You can get the tarmac speeds on Sunday.

Ill be looking at .gpx files from loads of places.....if I can beg borrow or steal from you guys!! Any data is appreciated...even if only rough!

Actually, Dooby Roar c.hill have you guys got the .gpx files for MOC 2015 in Kilworth and The DF champs there last month? Would probably be a good place to start.

Also been thinking of where Shrone would fit into the terrain types!

Maybe "west cork" can be its own category!
