Found uphills hard but kept a reasonable pace. Was winning course ahead of Brain C and Guss until I made a balls of 8 and dropped 3 minutes. I ran down linear marsh thinking it was main marsh and was searching hills along wrong section of woodland. Quite disappointed with that lapse. Team managed to claim 3rd in a sprint finish so the 3 minutes dropped didn't cost any placings.

Running warm up/down 17:31 [2] 2.66 km (6:36 / km) +67m 5:51 / km
shoes: Icebug Acceleritas4

Orienteering race 1:11:54 [4] 8.98 km (8:01 / km) +262m 6:59 / km
shoes: Icebug Acceleritas4

2nd half of this feels like one of my worst navigational performance ever. I gifted class win but no-one else took up the offer.

Good to 6 and most of long leg 7.
Time loses from then on.
7 4 mins
8 30 secs
9 2.30
10 30 secs
11 3
12 15secs
13 3.15

14 minutes in all, so my guess of 15 minutes when I finished was very close

OK, I now know what happened at 13, I navigated to 14...and spiked it! But code was wrong and it was on a crag. Fortunately I still had 13 in my head, but didn't notice the code at this control matched my next control. I then relocated and navigated back to this control and then noticed it was the code for 14. Headed up the hill to 13 and didn't get it cleanly and neither did I spike 14 on my return!
3 PM

Went well, clean run, so happy with that, and 1st M45 is a nice bonus.

Minor time loses and not as good as many on the downhills.
