GreenX course at US Champs. For various convoluted reasons decided to run green at this event. Walked most of the course, running in the very few spots where I ended up on a trail and about half the finish run in for maybe a total of one or two hundred meters. But kept up a decent pace. Took a couple of slow routes - straight to #1 through several marshes that sucked at your shoes, to the right to #3 following the lower set of stone walls instead of just having confidence and going straight. Bobbled #5 a bit getting off my compass initially but correcting at a stone wall and then not going far enough up the reentrant and standing around a bit before going on and eventually getting it. Got lucky on #9, the mismapped clearing and didn't lose time - came out of the veg boundary expecting to have to go left but saw the control to my right. The course was eventually thrown out because a lot of people lost a lot of time if they attacked from more definite features further down the hillside. The clearing was about 100 meters to the east of where it was mapped, clearly outside the circle and nothing else around it. Had fun but wasn't reading the small contour detail particularly well.
