Orienteering race (Relay) 53:56  **** 9.0 km (6:00 / km)
25c shoes: Inov-8 X-Talon 225
Set off in the lead after a great run by Kris
Soon caught by Doug on 2 but took a better route on 4 and made a small lead, yes!. Longer gaffle on 5 meant we were back together on 6 and 7. Then I gained perhaps 30/40s by taking the path to 8, but blew this with really poor direction to 9 and found Doug just punching ahead of me. Then it was game over for me on 10 I. I was so lost I had to relocate from the path. Just couldn't read the contours well in this bit at all.
Steady on my own to the finish from here on to hand over to Will with a 5 min lead due to Scotland's mp.
Will went out an fought hard till the end to secure 5th. Couldn't have expected any better. Great fun.
