Rogaine race 2:55:43 [3] 17.0 km (10:20 / km) +1050m 7:54 / km
shoes: Brooks Cascadia

Rogaine based at Wilton around the bottom part of Otari-Wilton bush plus Tinakori, with Josh and a couple of his running mates (Joe only joined us an hour in).
Quite a technical rogaine with Tinakori being fairly awkward, but think we did reasonably. I was doing all the navigating and leaving the others to do most of the answer finding and writing as they were all faster than me. A couple of minor mistakes both due to missing minor tracks : ended up going round to get into 81, then ended up going 71-23-60-91 rather than the intended 71-60-23-91. Also, very frustratingly, spent about 5 mins searching for 90, our second control and never found it. Not a suitable control when the description is just "NE of river 15m" when the area is a steep slope covered in native bush and we're just looking for a small ribbon of (at that stage) unknown size and colour. Also wasted about 5 mins trying to find the answer at 80 - think there was probably a sign that had been removed. As a result, missed out on a few points at the end.
Tried to be fairly conservative physically, and was still feeling reasonable at the end.
