QOC Glen Artney Red. Started around 1:30, which may not have left enough time before courses closed at 3 to finish this course in the best of circumstances. Huge blunder at No. 2, in the wrong field about 50m SW, left thinking the control was in the wrong place, but on the way out saw the right field and found it easily. Another mistake on No. 4, went up the wrong stream, and again on No. 9 didn't see the fence and lost position for a while. I really can't find fault with the map or control placements. But the course was long and physical, and I clearly didn't give it enough respect. Too many DNFs all over this event, so I wasn't the only one. Also not enough water. Out of water at 2 of 3 water stops on Red, and Yellow runners were complaining that there was no water until near the end of their course (and half of them were out for more than 2 hours).
