WTF it was only open for seven days??? I think you need to revamp your course opening periods. Similarly Armadale and Ballajura are only open for seven days.

Yes each course is open for a week. That said once you unlock them you can run them whenever just won't go on main leaderboard if it's expired just your private leaderboard

Hmm probably won't make it to many courses then given my current running load, which mainly involves running a course if I happen to be in the area!

Yeah it's designed so there is a course in the south, central and north to maximize coverage I expect most would only do one of the 3 in any given week.

I'll try and get out to the Huntingdale one over the next week if I can get this splinter out of my foot.

That's no way to talk about Tash.

Yeah!! I'm much much more painful than that.

Well... looks like Monday will be my fitness assessment at DFR. Luckily I called the eastern states office about it because I've not heard a thing about where or when it was meant to be (7:30am in Perth so I've only just found out - more incentive to get the splinter out now).

I was planning to do City Beach during the next week, just as well I read this post.

Well you can do it still next week - once you unlock a course it is yours forever its just your attempts will go on the private leaderboard only as once a course expires the public leaderboard freezes at that point in time.

With just the one participant on it...

yup - never expect week one to have busy courses though.

See my AP log and SR comments re North Perth Score course. Upload failed. Course was wrong, I suggest that if you want to put controls in laneways, don't put them right at the end shown on the map, because that is usually wrong and impossible to get to. These can be checked by viewing the satellite image, then corrected if necessary. 6 controls on this course were beyond the end of actual public right of ways.

Also maybe offset the circles to one side of the road so that it's easier for runners to know where it is, rather than we have to circle around the whole road (with risk of getting hit by car). Only option to print the map was a crap result - barely readable standing still and impossible on the run.

Finally, the Start triangle is at 8 Farmer St, not 10, which is almost 100m to the West.

Simmo there is a ~30m leeway with controls so you can run past it on the path (if it's circled on the road) and still collect it. I did this on a few of the Huntingdale ones yesterday (within 5m).

Well if I could upload my route I would be able to see that.

Sorry to hear of these troubles Simmo - could you email me your gpx please so I can have a look at what went wrong. The only place that it should fail is if you didn't visit start and finish.

Re the printing - there is a app coming which will be easier to use in some ways

I'll take your point re laneways but I image you would have got the points if you got close

GPX is here.
