MetrO race at Mullalloo. Wasn't sure how my calf muscle would go, so decided in advance to avoid running on the soft sand beach and paths. Followed a small group led by tRicky across the road to 103 (guess I'll have to give Sarah and Andries a tutorial in Purple Pen so they can get the numbers right). The group soon disappeared, except for Bree at her second event. I was walking the hills, and Bree would disappear until I caught her at the controls, which she was consistently overshooting. Eventually I persuaded her to look in the centre of the circle. She disappeared after 124 when I headed to the group of 3 controls in the patch of bushland (one of which I didn't find) but saw her again at 126 before she disappeared for good at 123, and finished about 30 seconds behind me. Not a great route, and after a good look at the map I can't find a decent route that doesn't involve the beach controls.
