Orienteering race (SHIs relay) 51:54  9.1 km (5:42 / km)
shoes: X-Talon 212 3rd Pair
Rhys set me off in quite a nice position but I knew I had to work hard on the first few controls as there was no one behind me. Pushed hard to catch Jamie Stevenson on the way to 1 only to see him punch a control way before me, so I had to navigate myself. Actually turned out my 1 was his 2 which confused me a bit. Took a different route choice to him to 2 where I caught Barrable, started to follow him on the way to 3 through some brambles but decided to take the path instead which was definitely the right descision, went past 2 Irish guys at this point. Got in a train with Jamie and Barrable on the way to 4 and stuck behind them mostly taking Barrables lines all the way to 14, Jamie was trying hard to get away the whole time and finally got a gap at 14. Was quite surprised to see Harrison at 16, followed his route to 18. Pushed hard to catch back up with Jamie and Barrable through 19, 20 but then I had an awful gaffle in some brambles while everyone else had theirs in nice dunes. Saw Coombs at 22 which was another surprise but he was running fast so couldn't keep with him, ran the rest by myself. Bit annoyed that I couldn't keep with Jamie and Barrable in the end but still happy to get 3rd fastest on 2nd leg. Probably one of my best runs ever, lots of fun.
