Red course at Little Bennett Regional Park (QOC local event). 7.9k, 265m. Generally open woods (except where it's mapped medium or dark green, which we avoided or passed through on trails). Some deadfall underfoot and the main point features are rootstocks. With high winds two days before the event, not all the rootstocks were mapped.
Had a pretty good run with one 2.5 minute loss on a short leg where I missed a trail junction and ended up traversing through rough open marshy stuff rather than on a trail. Small loss on #4 checking out the wrong set of rock features. Several of the controls on rootstocks involved getting into the circle and then checking behind rootstocks until a bag appeared. Nice course by Sam Listwak dealing well with the limitations of the area. Sunny and in the 40s - nice day for running in the woods.
