Orienteering Forest (race) 1:16:33 [4] 11.5 km (6:39 / km) +400m 5:40 / km

Long Pig at Mt Airy. A very route-choice-like course that almost felt like a ski-O at some times. Trail running and road running and big route choice decisions. The course could have maybe had some more long legs perpendicular to the ravine system, to avoid some road running, but I still enjoyed the race very much. I made the wrong route decision twice, adding up to around 1:30 of lost time, but nailed all the controls. Second spot, just 19 seconds behind Jon Torrance. Very tight field with 5 runners within about 2 minutes! Great sun and a wonderful day with friends.

Running Smooth 20:00 [2]

Various warm-up sessions through the day.

Orienteering City/Park (race) 15:22 [4] 2.25 km (6:50 / km) +60m 6:02 / km

Pig Sprint in a park with forest ravines and open meadows. Good clean run with the best route choices on the two longer legs in the beginning of the course. Excellent sprint area and a sunny crisp day. Fun!

Orienteering Forest (race) 35:33 [4] 5.7 km (6:14 / km) +300m 4:56 / km

Last leg for the Trans Canada Express. Started just under a minute behind Eric Bone in third place, 5 minutes behind Sergei Zhyk. Ran hard down and up the ravines in the beginning and could see Eric's back the first time at control 4, but very far ahead in the open forest. Saw him again coming in to the spectator control and now he was pretty close suddenly. From this point I was just the same speed as him and could never close the gap. Great course for the spectators with many loops through the finish area. Vlad was the MC and the race was great! Caught 4 min on Zhuk, so it was pretty close in the end. I had the fastest time on the last leg of the relay.

Running Rough 45:00 [2]

Warm-up and cool-down. Took time to do a proper warm-up.

Orienteering Forest (race) 34:54 [4] 4.8 km (7:16 / km) +290m 5:35 / km

Middle distance Pig. Ravine and ridge, with a section very detailed control picking in some small depressions. Ran well and focused, nothing but maybe 30 seconds total lost on mistakes. 1:16 behind Jon, could not have run that time without better running shape. Fun, fun stuff!
