Orienteering race 1:13:24  *** 5.9 km (12:26 / km) +70m 11:45 / km
spiked:8/11c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #3
US Long champs/brown F55 -- 2nd place, less than a minute behind Sandy. Amazingly, Natalia, after seeing no one else registered for the sprint yesterday, switched all weekend to green, F50 (and she didn't have fun today). She never checked beyond Friday. Two others in F55 were pretty far behind, one of them having taken 45-minutes on a leg where I took 14:xx (#6)--which was likely mismapped (and protestable, tho I didnt hear whether it was).
Both Sandy and I had errors to 2 which was a short leg but crosses marsh with medium green. I went a bit beyond 6, wandering with a number of other Brown runners but I turned back because I'd gone too far and happened to spot the bag, tho not on the west edge of green 30m from the river as mapped. Good safe route to 7 up streams. To 9 I aimed off a bit too far and ended up near the S end of the formline hill, 200m(?) off. Otherwise, I enjoyed the low relief of the mostly floodplain running.
Tomorrow is in the more detailed spur/reentrant part of the map, a ways to the east of today's River Bend map.
Sunny, fairly dry, and temps in the mid-upper 70s. FR later.
EDIT: FR = 7.165km, 70m climb
