Adding unnecessary miles thru improperly marked junctions or spoil sports must be quite irksome, though.

Thanks. Adding a mile by missing a well-marked turn-off in the beginning was irksome. But the poorly marked junctions later on turned the marathon into an adventure race, and some good team effort evolved as folks converged and reported on their futile attempts at finding the route, and then decided how to proceed. Eventually the marked trails were found again. It was rather low key, and in the end, there were no bad feelings as far as I could tell - everybody just judged his/her own performance in terms of effort and time.

Nice run! You should try rogaining, where the navigation might be easier.

You are one tough guy. I learned long ago getting fuel and drink early and often made me at least feel much better, and when I felt better I ran faster!

Well done Ernst!!
Wondering if having a (very basic) map would help.
