Short course at Garvey Park. GPS 2.72kms. Blew 5 mins looking for a dead tree at 9. I somehow turned my map around so was trying to read my way in from 10 instead of 8. Eventually relocated on another dead tree next to a path 100m from the control. Then promptly wasted another 30 secs by not realising 10 was on the other side of the drain, so I didn't aim for either of the bridges instead of the control.

Long course at Garvey Park, treated more as a middle distance race. 4.41kms. Got the dead tree right this time, but it was earlier in the course (3-4). Messed up 8, crossing the marsh well before it and coming out at 9 - two to two-and-a-half minutes. Helped a new guy (young and fit-looking) into 14, then he stuck with me to 19, where Veronika passed, so he latched onto her to 20, then outsprinted her into the finish.
