2013 Australian Middle Distance Championships
The Gib, ACT
I took a careful approach to the first few controls, getting into the style of mapping. I made sure that my direction was accurate, which helped me to almost stumble across some of the control flags on the short legs.
I saw a bit of Murray Scown from 9 onwards after he caught me 2 minutes. We took significantly different routes on the long leg to 19. I went straight over the hill and Murray went left around the hill. Our splits were almost identical. I then chased him from 19 to the finish.
I was happy with my run. I could not have saved much more time. I just didn't have the terrain speed of some of the top runners.
