orienteering race (Night) 1:02:07  3.7 km (16:47 / km)
Maximus orienteering meeting -prologue
Just one course, but a loop race so lots of gaffles, (8 runners per minute and some of the 220 entered were not elite).....but not to number just one so just run as hard as possible up the hill over the rocks, and crags, and brashings into the dark unknown, 300m where have the lights gone, 500m second wave crashed past ….ah top of the hill a boulder 3m but which??…..plenty of choice
Difficult to sort on the map where to go next, even harder on the ground, Rocks, Crags, re-entrants, rocks, brashings rocks. lights, runners.....just fantastic.....really being careful and overall not too bad - missed 11, ironically ran down wrong path (of 3 on the map) -realised quire early but 5 mins to recover and quite pleased with that, could have been much, much worse, then another 3 at a switch control that I had been to....looking for wrong feature, annoying.
Alice beat me and Mark did 47 mins.....but I did pretty well and was pleased.... what an introduction just WOW
