To the start. No time for more but walked a mile to the event as warm up anyway...

Orienteering 33:15 intensity: (28:15 @4) + (5:00 @5) 6.45 km (5:10 / km) +4m 5:09 / km

Conveniently those nice people in SLOW had put a park race on at Battersea Park. Just had time for a run off first start. Took a few controls before I remembered to look for the gripples where appropriate, took a while to spot #4 in the open depression as I was looking for a stake not a flag in the back of a tree!

Only one occasion when I was caught out by heading straight towards an uncrossable couldn't find a way into #20 through the nettles (the way in was by a flag on the ground, but that just confused me as I thought maybe the control had been vandalized!).
Also not great and lost time through the scrappy woods at 8-9-10-11 (even though 8 and 11 were the same one). It was quite gloomy in there which didn't help but was definitely not the sole cause...

Running warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.5 km (6:40 / km)
shoes: Brooks Ghost 10

From download to the station, with bag(s).
