Orienteering (Course 3) 1:05:10  5.0 km (4.6 kph)
North Auckland Event in pineforested sand dune country north of Auckland near Helensville. This is a prelim event to the Oceania Champs. Day 1 of 3.
Set of very cautiously and as someone who has not done a lot of running for a while. That was reflected in the time taken to the first control. It did however allow me to get a feel for the map which in turn made me very comfortable with the route choices. I knew were I was all the time and only made minor mistakes totalling maybe 4 minutes. Happy with the time.
