Very poor choice of terrain for a middle distance. Given the weather, not a good course setting. There was no technical map reading involved. The only choices were: Were you cold/wet enough to run around the streams, and were you fed up enough with the green to try to avoid it which you can.t. Part of the course was a long sprint, the other part was just blind compass work in the green.
I crossed 7 major streams on the course with the depth between 1-2.5 feet deep. Did I mention that it was about 30 degrees out. It was not fun freezing your feet legs repeatedly. Myself, like others, couldn't get our shoes off after the course because the shoe laces were frozen.
