Marummila near Sandefjord. Mass-start event with 3 map exchanges. Fell a bit behind in the start when everyone was sprinting out. Caught the lead pack of 5 juniors, who had gotten a gap, on a longer leg along the gravel road. We stayed together for the rest of the race.
The race included a contours-only section. Was worried about this, but I felt I navigated well in this section. It wasn't really possible to pull away from the pack, since it was control picking almost the whole way (39 controls total). On the way to the last exchange I tried to push the pace a bit. Had to focus on the last 5 controls, as I was running hard and the navigation was a bit tricky. Thought for sure I had bagged the race when punching first on the second last control, but got stuck a bit in some green on the way to the last control. One of the juniors snuck ahead, and beat me to the finish.
Fun run in very varied terrain.
