Why have a bush course if you put all the controls at or near tracks??
You're right. Let's make it properly easy and get rid of the bush.
By the way. Big Foot Sprints this year (December 17) will be mostly bush on a new sandstone map around the old UTS campus. But I'm guessing your ankle wouldn't hold up - best stick to urban sprints snd MTBO.
Ha yeah I was keen for the big foot sprints... Until the surgery happened...
I'm waiting for the race walking classes to be offered at Australian orienteering races.
"Power walking" at Melbourne Street O? It can become an endless grumbling about whether that is a walk or run.
Sounds just like race walking doesn't it?
Except race walking is like having all the participants visit the same two controls over and over until the required distance is done.
I think the best analogy I've heard to race walking is someone who described it as being like having to drive from Sydney to Melbourne in the shortest possible time without being booked for speeding.
... and looking like a duck.
