Real Orienteering race 25:04 [4] *** 3.6 km (6:58 / km) +70m 6:21 / km
spiked:14/14c shoes: ASIC Kayano green/white

Vic Relays. Took me a short time to realise that this looked like a sprint map but wasn't. A standard all to its own. Went as hard as I could to not stand out against other team members and achieved that in splitting their two times.
Not sure I like the idea of the Vic Relay becoming a sprint relay event (next year at Westgate Park). But I don't like the idea of two separate relay events (one bush, one sprint). When it comes to Bendigos time might have to argue for something that actually fits the IOF relay profile- limited visibility in particular. I think the current state of the New Saint Mungo map fits the bill, though it is at 1:5,000 scale. I think visibility is the more important issue.

Real Orienteering race 53:57 [4] *** 7.52 km (7:10 / km) +175m 6:26 / km
spiked:8/10c shoes: Salamon Blue

Quite a contrast from the previous weekend. Run the red line and the control will appear... unless its behind a tree. Went past twice for that reason.
Despite knowing the map really well, and running as hard as I could, still ten minutes behind where I would like to be.

Running 1:32:00 [3] 9.7 km (9:29 / km) +150m 8:48 / km
shoes: Salamon Blue

More exploring of the new area. Running with GPS to build a base map. No lidar or photogram so it will be challenging. Highlight was getting the car well bogged. Pulled out eventually by a large tilt tray truck with a big chain.
Here are some picture from an earlier trip.
