Orienteering race (Long) 2:45:57 [4] 11.6 mi (14:18 / mi) +610m 12:18 / mi
shoes: Inov-8 330 Mudclaw

At start, noticed right away that it was a big map, scale 1:10000 and not 1:15000. That's good for me. I prefer that.

On the long leg 2-3, decided to stay on trail and just jog, to save energy for later. While closing in on 3, and was following a bunch of other younger competitors, saw the shack, and quickly assumed it was the black dot just south of control 3. Well, it was the wrong thing to assume. The black dot south of the control were actually two boulders, and the shack was a black building map symbol in the out-of-bounds area, striped with vertical magenta lines. My eyes could not see that. Eventually, saw a trail or ride along the creek and followed that, and got some bearings, finding first control 4, and then control 3.
