My routes at the Highlander --
(Jackie Jones), for controls 4-7 you could choose which 4 of 7 (A-G) you wanted to go to. Smaller
(the trail run), nasty going SW along the lake, and no streamers from 11 to 12 (and the mapping of the intersection right after 11 was way off), but very flat overall, especially for Harriman.
(Rockhouse), and a smaller version
. This one seemed to take forever. King of the Mountain leg was 18 to 19.
For history buffs, according to JJ much of this course was what Steve Hale ran astoundingly fast to get the silver medal in the relay (and almost the gold) for Great Britain at WOC 93.
(Lake Welch Beach), map used for sprint at Team Trials in 2010. I'd figured we only had about 3 more km to do, was expecting a loop loop back out on Rockhouse, so this was a pleasant surprise for the weary legs. On the other hand, my mind was not so weary that it couldn't tell that the map really sucked. Maybe not so noticeable at sprint speed, but at end-of-Highlander speed it was pretty obvious. Not that it really mattered for what we were doing.
