Short brown (M50). Nominal 8.6km/155m
Drifted R for #3 and looped to find the right pit (+60s). A bit low for #5, +20s. Planned to follow an earth bank S to a pond attackpoint for #8, but drifted L and failed to find either, ended up thrashing about in green, realised what I'd done when I saw I was too close to the open area to the E (+2:30). Pretty thick forest made slow going for #8, #9, #10, #11.
Followed the earth bank for #12 which should've been at the end of it (described as junction of two earth banks) but when I got there, there was a RAFO runner already looping to find it. Eventually we located the control in the wrong place, 100m E, at the junction of two ditches! (+4:00, game over). In the download queue I found if you were on blue you'd have approached from the E and found it OK, will be interesting to see it on routegadget.
After that, not too bad. Stuck in brambles/stream exiting #17, and a bit unsure of path junctions on the way to #19.
Result 10th/26. http://www.chig.routegadget.co.uk/rg2/#39&cour...
Mildly annoyed that without the obvious errors I'd have made it into the top 5 on that course. Maybe I should just've run the longest course, they didn't visit 118 >:-)
