SWOC local event on Sugar Lump -really nice place to run, pretty clean but a bit more offline on a number of controls than I would have expected. Had hoped to be a bit quicker as woods in great condition, in the open although bracken was dead still some quite heavy going.
Really enjoyed trip

Warm up

orienteering race 37:00 [5] 3.4 km (10:53 / km)

Compassport cup Green Men in Quantock south don't really know what to say about this - I knew before starting that I needed to run fast as course had been described as trivial - first six were easy mostly in open ran quite fast but lost seconds at 3 and 4 where I was flag blind. Then I misread the map and went down the hill into a parallel area of horrid green forest, eventually realised but then stopped ridiculously short on 8. After which I was ok and actually had fastest split on uphill leg but 10 mins lost in total so a long way down. Mark took 24 mins which was actually pretty good.

I was quite upset and disappointed at the end of the race
