Orienteering race 48:14  5.51 km (8:45 / km) +104m 8:00 / km
Orienteering on new map "something different" near Cessnock. Was different to the usual Newcastle area. Had to return my map as we were running short due to the number of people. Nice day for a run.
Too much track running for my knee. Flogged by Alvin.
S-1 main track, angle in from second track on left.
1-2 out to track, along to intersection, slightly confused which track I was on, scramble up hill.
2-3 straight aiming for S end of rock face, straight.
3-4 down to track, slight wobble to get off top of rock wall, track to clearing, straight, little N, S to control.
4-5 out to track junction, along track, along W rocky ground, across creek, along creek, up into gully.
5-6 out to track, along track to divide, left track too early, through rocks to control
6-7 straight across creek, pick up track for bit, straight, across track, to far NE, SW to control.
7-8 out to track, tracks to S end of rock face, up rock face (didn't need too?), along top to control.
8-9 straight, need to deviate slightly to N to get into end of gully.
9-10 down gully to track, to intersection, straight N until intersect with track again, follow track down to creek, straight up to gully.
10-11 straight, slightly to S when got to edge of steep gully, N to control.
11-12 took off into open ground after SC and ST who came past at 11, then had to stop and work out where I was, off embankment and along creek to control, in hindsight probably should have followed them all the way.
12-13 out to track junction, track through light green, straightish to control.
13-14 tracks to near control, veered onto track going N without noticing, circles for a minute trying to work out, SW to control.
14-15 tracks to near control, in from junction.
15-16 along white, until turned green, didn't see control, read description and then back looking for right feature.
16-17 along white.
17-F run vaguely in direction of finish until spot red flag.
