Score OY, Godley Head, with a twist. Not just a 90 minute time limit but also a 30 control (out of 40) limit. So for those with a more tactical head (and faster legs) than mine there was that extra layer of deciding which low point controls to miss even if you were going right past them. Or for those of us that assumed we were unlikely to get 30 controls, then discovered by the halfway mark we'd covered much more ground than expected, it was an exercise in hurriedly working out which controls to add to the planned route home to get up to 30. The end part of my course probably looks rather odd with several changes of mind. To add to the challenge I didn't start my watch until getting my 2nd control, which I would have guessed took longer than 1:45, so thought I had less time in hand near the end than I did. Very tough physically, was struggling to run even on the tracks!
