JK Summary - overall, I really enjoyed this year's JK. I had low expectations of the areas and my own fitness - but I was pleasantly surprised on both counts and glad I went.

The sprint race was superb and I'm definitely keen to do more. Day 1 was a true classic and Day 2 was also an enjoyable, well-planned challenge. The contrast of the areas was dramatic, the first day requiring Nordic-style constant contact with the map and good bearings, and the second day offering continental-style route choice. The relay area was a bit grotty and muddy, but was flat and fast and fine for a relay race. The weather was in general good, except for a cloudburst just before the relays. And I got around the courses much more successfully than I thought I would.

Only downers were that the accommodation was functional rather than comfortable, and the distance between Day 1 and Day 2 was awfully far.

Overall a great four days of orienteering in Yorkshire.

Cycle Commuting (In to Work) 10:43 [2] 3.3 km (3:15 / km)
