At least, the current map shows where you can't go.

I've no idea why EUOC wont use my version of maps. Jegor might be a better mapper, but even he can't see eight years into the future :(

This map shows why I got so confused at number 17:

The feature no longer exists. I’m not complaining. It was a nice night out, so I thank the planner for getting me out of the door. I love a bit of a thorn pick too. I think having a mapping / planning moan is a part of the sport that we miss too right?

Silly question, but why are people using an old, incorrect map when a newer one exists? Never mind 17, it looks like 13 and 26 are entirely inaccessible on the new map?

Although it reminds me of a British Nights in Norfolk where the map for the Nights was entirely different from (and worse than) the map for the badge the next morning held on the exact same area.

I got 13 from above but lost a lot of blood in the process. You could have got it from standing on the path below as the MapRun punching radius was set to high. 26 was much, much nastier, but 2 people managed to get it. But yes, a 7 year old map of this area is next to useless.

Quit whinging Claire - the results are in and you won!

I always thought actually visiting the control was overrated.

Yes I thought granting me the victory on time alone was a bit generous. I’d have given 1st and 2nd to those that actually were prepared to shed extra blood for the satisfaction of completing the course.

My equality algorithm is saying W40 winterlope has to be longer than M21 next year...
