Fletch's trail run course. During the pre race briefing there was a suggestion to let the slower runners go off first so Henry and I hung back before punching the start. I think he wanted me to go first but I declined so I let him punch then took off after him. Blasted past most people to the first then past Ameko, Oliver and finally Simmo to the second. I was happy to let someone else lead to the first few so I could figure out the map. After that it was just Henry and I.
I was wondering at what point he was going to smash it away from me but it didn't happen until the downhills, where he was a lot more sure footed than me and opened a gap but I plugged away on the uphills and finally got past him on the long uphill from 15-16, then kept ahead until #21, after which was a short cross-country leg that I annihilated and he got past, never to be seen again. Finished ~25 seconds behind so happy to have backed up after yesterday when I didn't think I'd be walking for a while.
