Prince William blue. They ran out of blue maps. I had to draw in map on the red course, and part of my map was covered by red course descriptions. This affected my route to 6. Going to 2, I was running too fast and lost contact with the map. I kept going and got into the correct re-entrant but was still confused. I was going down to the larger stream to relocate but then saw a runner coming across and went back to check where he went and then saw the punch. Tom Strat caught up here, but soon I pulled ahead. On the way to 6 I went fairly straight, crossed the stream 3 times and went through lots of thick vegetation so this was slow. I couldn't take the trails after I crossed near the dam because it was covered on my map and I didn't know how much extra distance and climb and where it went. Then I tried to follow the stream but it was too thick, so I crossed again and went over the hill and back down, crossed again, then slowly walked up to punch. Tom caught up again. Everything went smooth after that and I ran confident after spiking the harder controls 8 and 10, though could have saved a little time with a few different minor route choices.

Run back to picnic area parking instead of taking the shuttle. Extra distance added intentionally when I looped on the birch bluff trail. Followed signposts and map memory. I didn't know the name of my destination (Telegraph picnic area), but I ended up exactly at the parking lot I wanted to go to. Knee was hurting a little so I walked near the end.
