Orieentering race 1:12:54 [4] *** 11.57 km (6:18 / km)
25c shoes: Icebug Spirit5 OLX

Compass Sport Cup Final, Helsington Barrows, Lake District.
Mainly open/semi-open limestone terrain. There was real potential to run fast so did my best to keep up a decent pace. The course presumably had a 370m climb but did not feel that hilly.

Made a large error (+1.15) to control 14. Misread the rock fields after the first reentrant and thought I was higher up the hill. Then aimed for the wrong rock area to the south. Somehow. A few minor mistakes to 6, 19 and 20 (+1.45). The cairn at 19 was smaller than expected and had some trouble reading the contours around the control. 6 and 20 was just lack of focus. But got 21 controls alright so still happy with the race and had a better time than expected.

Brown Cup (36/63)
Time: 72.54 min (+25.33) Gristwood!
O-distance: 10.40 km (7.02 min/km)
GPS distance: 11.57 km (6.18 min/km)
