Halifax Urban, UKOL, MV, 4th M45.
A bit of a race to get there in time, after being in the BOF Board meeting all day, but I managed to clear my head and focus on getting the navigation right and picking optimum routes. When I finished I thought I'd done that pretty well, though I'm still feeling sluggish in my running.
Turns out I made a stupid mistake running from the last control to the finish, when I'd basically put the map away. I thought I just had to reverse the route back out of the last control, turn left twice and down the road to the finish. In fact there was an earlier left turn, which I completely missed. Doh!!
That mistake cost me 30 seconds, which dropped me from 1st M45 to 4th M45, and from 4th to 8th on the course.
