Orienteering race 20:29 [4] 2.43 mi (8:26 / mi) +11m 8:19 / mi

US Sprint Championships - Genesee Valley Park

That didn't really go the way I wanted it too. I was unhappy with the mapping and printing, but it really only effected me on 15 where the guardrail that continued after the bridge wasn't mapped. I just saw uncrossable fence on the map, and ran to the end of it and around it, instead of trying to figure out where they decided it was crossable, and stopped mapping it. There is no excuse for the inconsistencies and non standardness of that map though.

I don't think the mapper really gets the concept of a sprint map, and what the symbolization is supposed to mean to people moving at speed in terms of the details that are required (guardrails or impediments that will break my stride) vs details that are not needed (the difference between all the tree types, canopy sizes, and various statue/swing/bleechers etc symbols).

Running 16:03 [1] 0.72 mi (22:16 / mi) +1m 22:10 / mi
