orienteering race 56:28 [4] *** 4.6 km (12:17 / km)
24c shoes: Icebug 2020

Cool Creek Park, Indianapolis. Lots of trails. Stream crossings were forbidden so there were many legs with long routes - actual distance per km of course was longer than typical. Also took a longer trail to avoid some lowland stinging nettles. Controls mostly were not super difficult, but lost at least 5 minutes on #12 - I went right to it, within 5 meters and didn't see the bag hidden in tall weeds. Decided I was not far enough upstream (since what was mapped as the side reentrant was deeper than the main channel, and curved the same direction as the stream did farther down. Spent a lot of time upstream and down before finally coming back and finding the hidden bag.

"Interesting" "sprint" at Cherokee Park. I can visualize the course setter gleefully rubbing his hands together, cackling like a mad scientist. I wonder what drivers on eastbound I-64 thought, seeing runners darting around right above the entrance to the tunnel! This was a pretty woodsy race for a summer sprint with lots of off-trail; fortunately the vegetation didn't prove to be too nettlesome.

the "short" sprint at Cherokee Park; fast and fun, lots of controls.
