Orienteering race 1:28:30  11.2 km (7:54 / km) +215m 7:13 / km
A pleasant hour and a half was spent searching for flags in a dark pitted woodland.
#3 In trying to avoid climbing the hill too much, I ended up too low on the edge of the grot. 30s
#7 Left path after the first enclosure, but initially searched for the control believing it to have been the second one. 1m
#8 Thought ‘this looks difficult, I need a safe route here’ and promptly just ran off in the general direction as usual. Lucky to relocate as quickly as I did. 2m
#14 Running with Alex Rothman here and we took the wrong path. 30s
#20 Took a high route and got stuck in some undergrowth. 1m
#21 Took the path which wasn’t necessary at the start of the leg. Overshot by one hole at the end of the leg. 30s
#25 Was on line for the control but then decided I wasn’t and bailed out to the path. 1m 30s
#33 Probably would have helped if I’d looked at my compass here. 1m 20s
#36 Took the wrong path then aimed for the wrong building. 1m
Around 9m of obvious errors but on this occasion enough to place 10th, 16mins down.
Not a bad result but annoyed with the mistakes I made.
Didn’t take a single bearing... (nothing new here)
