Made a complete !@#$/^&*'s of that!
Got 1/2 way to #4 before realising I hadn't been to #3.
Other than that a strange mix. A couple (no more) really good legs, but the majority were long, straight forward, boring, boring, boring, road runs, and then there were the woods....... don't ask!
At least it's one I can drop - points wise!

Fat Rascal / YUL - I won a cup!.... had no idea there was one for this race! :)
Not a clean race.... more to follow, but no major time loses, just afew 10-15-20 seconders here and there.
Far too warm again, the start area was a particular sun trap! Felt slow on my feet, obviously everyone else suffering too!....
S-1 V. slow start, legs not feeling it!
1-2 N. out of 1 - W. much better - not yet in navigation mode!
9-10 had to double check out of 9 - E. route dead end...... now subsequently noticed small path through if you keep SE to road!
14 - bit faffy into control.
15-16 bit faffy out of 15. Miss read railway - looking now it's probs because there's no thick black line on the SE side of the road where the tunnel symbol comes out so I read it as crossable. Had to stop under the road and work out to go up the steps ... d'oh!
16-17 played safe and went round the top.
18-19 got distracted by Tony C. (Controller) and missed the shorter cut across the grass!
20-21 cut across through 15, should probs have just gone round!
22-23 SE then NE - again caught out by the missing uncrossable wall symbol that should have been on the road! Should have known really, having already been caught out by it previously!!
26-27 description a little ambiguous / placement of control / Si box. On the map it should be on the S. side of the fence, which is the side I went to... it was on the other side!
May do a splits analysis later..... if I can be bothered!......I could be bothered.....it's on me map!

Steady but accurate run until penultimate control then blew 1+1/2 mins :( don't know if I just switched off, the map was a little rough - matching the terrain. Panicked a bit and eventually fell into the control even after carefully approaching from 180 the wrong direction!
Why do Planners have to spoil it by including controls in ambiguous areas / rough areas?.... personal opinion / observation!

Major Rant Alert!
Twitter Why do you include steep, rocky, summer undergrowth filled woodland in a Sprint? Black Mark to Planner and Controller!.... (another) personal opinion!
Although very small, you could easily have just used the park and had back to back maps......why, why, why????
