added by: Vector

Five of your usual style point to point courses plus the debut of a new bonus course. We are taking suggestions for the name - Misery-O...(belated) April Fool's shouldn't be surprised if something is wrong at every location. Usually, we count on our course setters to get everything perfect. Flag in the right place, checkpoint numbers correct...what if it all went terribly wrong...on purpose?

Course notes: CHECK YOUR CODES! Flags are quite close together, sometimes 60 meters on different features, and 75 meters apart on the same type of feature. There are some cozy sections, so your line to your next c may cross over an earlier or later circle - be sure you are going to the right place!

Current status:

Beginner / White: 1.6 km, 8 checkpoints. Flags at most decision points (trail junctions).

Advanced Beginner / Yellow: 2.7 km, 7 c. Flags off trail, but visible from trail. Which trail is on you!

Intermediate / Orange: 4.5 km, 10 c. Flags off trail, not always visible from trail, on larger features.

Advanced Short / Green: 4.9 km, 11 c. Flags as far off trail as Peach Mountain allows.

Advanced Long / Red: 7.7 km, 18 c. Flags as far off trail as Peach Mountain allows. Running short on time? Take labeled shortcut to finish Green instead, no harm done!

April Fools O: 3.0 km, 9 c. Despite our best efforts to train him, our course setter has done a horrible job and screwed up something at every checkpoint. Can you survive his mistakes and get through the course? Free if you run any other course.
