Fun times. Kept moving, never bonked but was never properly racing either. At one point (the last bit towards 8) I took a silly route because it looked like it could be very cool, but it was mostly just rough.
Lots of moss and dampness and bristly poky rocky scratchiness. All very atmospheric and wonderful.
There was actually quite a bit of variety in the course and the orienteering, which was appreciated.
Good work by Shane winning in under two hours. Nowhere close to saving the planner from an unwise bet with Brian C, though.
