Interesting naming convention since the H2 was the equivalent of any other H1 course this year in terms of distance and winning time although not number of controls. The H5 on the other hand, which we don't really use anymore, was longer than our present H4 standards of 2.5km-3km. I imagine Eventor would have to have been updated before results were uploaded given all events this year would have been set up with H1-H4.

H4 standard is 'maximum of 3.5km' not 2.5-3km. Today's courses could have been labelled H1 - H4 rather than H2 - H5, but in my view the H2 would have to have been at least 3km longer to be a real old-fashioned H1, so 'H2' was probably a valid description.

Okay I was going by what Penny told me regarding H4 last weekend whereas I should have read what was on the website (which doesn't list H5 as a course length). I realise the 'old' H1 would have been longer but the old H1 disappeared well before the time when we relabeled the courses as Expert, Beginner and so forth and subsequently back to their current conventions and Craig has run practically all the H1s this year in very similar times to what he took for this one.
