We went orienteering again! This was a BOK event at Carolina North Forest outside Chapel Hill. Again, you had to pick an hour during which to start, and there was a limit of six starts per hour. There were never more than a handful of people at the "arena", and everyone was good about social distancing. You were even asked to bring your own pen to sign the park-required waiver with.
The forest was very runnable, with gentle contours, and an extensive network of mountain bike trails. These were sometimes helpful, and sometimes confusing (there are constantly new trails popping up). I almost think the map would be better if they were just left off.
Alli ran the green course (and finished second!) while Inara and I played near the finish. Then I went out on red. I am clearly unfit, but I still tried to push reasonably hard. I bobbled about 20 seconds each on 1, 2, and 3 (the map was strange at 3), as well as 5,6, and 9. I think I ran out of steam after half an hour so, as my last few splits are noticeably slower, and I got beaten on the finish split.
It was a lot of fun, and really enjoyable orienteering. Thanks BOK for a second great O experience in a row!
