Bon Tempe. Brown 3.7/180. Start at 12:08. Sunny, cool. Annual volunteer appreciation meet. Hadn't been to this event in over a decade. The park was recently remapped, and the map did indeed seem much better, especially on the Hillside of Death. (There were two controls there on this course, and though the deadfall and vegetation is such that running is out of the question, I had no trouble navigating to those controls.)
One error, on the long leg to #7, where I sort of outsmarted myself. Had planned to stay on the trail all the way to the junction, but Tony was just ahead of me for most of that run, so towards the end I could see that the road was just above and we were going to swing wide around a spur, so thought I 'd get clever and cut up to the road to cut off some distance. However, I was one spur further along than I thought I was, so in cutting up to the road I missed the trail junction I'd been aiming for, and after getting 200m and 3 countours down the road, realized something was dramatically wrong. Took about a minute to figure it out, but an additional two minutes to climb back up. Yeesh, only mistake is on a trail and road. :-(
Came in first on Brown by about 3 minutes (official time was 1:00:40), ahead of Bob Cooley. Another set of people will be running the same course tomorrow.
Note on GPS track: Failed to take a split at #1, so the control numbers are off by 1. #1 was at the 1:30 mark on the track.

Walked with Dan Greene part way to the start, then jogged the rest of the 1 km as my warm up.
