S6D2 - Edinchip
Nearly arrived late for the start!
Grind uphill towards #1 & #2 - no proper warm-up.
Wasn't sure whether we had to use crossing points so spent some seconds considering that before changing direction to use them. Then completely misread the map and was thinking control was on far side of the river. Realised in time.
Slog to #4 and then running too fast downhill without navigating behind Roger Thomas (different course) and wrong line from moor into woods. Took a couple of minutes to relocate and correct.
#6 ok, thrown off line by unmarked hazard tapes near old railway embankmenton way to #7. Cost 1min.
Long leg to #8 was distracted by Simon Hunter running and talking away in front. Lost focus and binned a couple of mins close to the end, going too high & relocating off path.
With Graham McIntyre next few controls - led him to #9, he led to #10.
Long leg to #11 decided to go straight, then maybe left, then right, then decided on straight again. Graham headed right after crossing the railway embankment & took a minute out of me running along the path, but I was happy to navigate cleanly through the marshes.
Bit contrived making the river OOB without any extra controls on bridges - clean through rest.
