Orienteering 1:28:23 [3] 8.6 km (10:17 / km)

Oceania Day 1. Was happy enough with my run so a bit surprised to be so far down the list. Definitely handled the sanddunes better than the last time I was in NZ. Did make a rookie 180 error on a track somehow.

Orienteering 2:09:04 [3] 8.4 km (15:22 / km)

Beechworth. Epic. Couldn't really read the map until 7. Then things started to make a little more sense. Didn't really enjoy the climb and the race seemed to go on forever. Stopped for a drink and a chat at the run through but Aislinn wasn't keen to take my SI for a warmdown so headed off down the hill again. Brutal day out.

Orienteering 54:15 [3] 3.9 km (13:55 / km)

Rowdy Flat. Best race of the carnival. Clearly swimming through a dark tunnel of cold water the night before is good race preparation. Didn't do very well at Rowdy at Vic Champs, so was happy to have a better run this time. Lost it a little coming into 4 when things stopped making sense close to the circle, but relocated off a patch of blackberries. Out and around to 9, mistakenly going through the creek. Fell over trying to take the ford at speed the first time and was thankful for waterproof maps. Squelched around the rest of the course. Took the wrong track from a junction to 14 - rookie error. Got bitten by a bull ant on the way to the last control. Mustn't have been moving that quickly! Felt pretty good running and enjoyed the feeling :)

Orienteering 1:08:24 [3] 5.6 km (12:13 / km)

Kangaroo Crossing. Had heard someone say earlier in the week over the loudspeaker that the green and steep parts of the map hadn't been used - then picked up the map to find the entire thing green. Missed on 2 but relocated. Searching too far up the gully for 4 and just stumbled upon it. Went up and over and around the track to 8 (same as I did on a similar route at Vic Champs - maybe I need to HTFU).
