Brown course at QOC's Little Bennett map; 3.8 km / 100m climb listed; 1:10000 map. Temp was comfortable in the upper 40s with some breeze but full sunshine.
Course by Sam Listwak who warned that because of limitations of the park the Brown course would have a significant amount of trail running. That was fine for me today as I didn't need tons of navigational difficulty with lots of stuff underfoot. The first five controls had proper difficulty, and the rest were just off trails (yellow level), okay by me. I managed to mess up one of the easier ones by misreading where the cliff was near the bridge/creek crossing near the end, but not for long.
Third woman I think, behind Kathleen L (~48:00), and Diana Todd (~51:00), both strong runners; 6th overall. A nice day to get out and reconnect with east coast folks. ;-)
