Orienteering race 58:48 [5] *** 7.0 km (8:24 / km)
34c shoes: Icebug olx 2nd

The QOC Bumble, rapidly becoming an annual tradition. One course, 5 windows, mass start. Handicap/course level determines how many windows you can skip, you choose which ones. Then if everyone has self-handicapped correctly, it's a mass finish too.

It turns out Morven Park was a good place to hold this event. I skipped the forest window, but in retrospect I think it would have been better if I had skipped the open field window at the far eastern end of the course. That one was kind of fun, but a lot of cross-country running, and the skip would have cut off a big chunk of distance. I was all alone at that point, but got in with some others on the next window with the weird rock mounds, and finished together with a few of the blue and green runners, so the handicapping worked out pretty well.
