Run race ((orienteering)) 58:59  *** 6.0 km (9:50 / km) +165m 8:39 / km
Bendigo Saturday event at Virginia Hill, one of those areas which Bendigo specialises in - a patch of old mining country, partly open, partly scrubby, and often challenging, with the extra possibilities that the 1:5000 map offers.
This wasn't a good day for me. My main issues came in some flat country on the west side of the map, where much of the detail was vegetation that I never got to grips with. Dropped probably 3 minutes on 9, coming past a clearing in green twice without seeing it, then when we came back there on the second loop, lost another 1.5-2 minutes on 18 (and smaller bits on 19 and 20), although with the slight mitigation that 18 was (a) hidden and (b) slightly misplaced.
Was in a bit of a rush to get started on this before last start and wasn't running that well at the start, but felt better as it went on (never great though).
Bruce did 41. I probably should have been 52-53 with a decent run.
