Sunny Sussex race 3, Friston Forest. 1st M55-60 & 2nd on Blue (behind W16 Lyra M…) A bit hillier and more brambly but still lots of opportunity to run straightish. Enjoyed despite never really getting to grips with the mapping or some of the cartography. Lost time to 4 and again to 8, both times I had some map issues en route and then struggled to find it too (at 8 for drawing/printing reasons). Maybe 5mins or so dropped, ouch.
Only realised on Saturday that the slightly odd scoring system for the overall ‘Sunny Sussex’ results also extended to only counting the two forest races rather than Saturday evening too. Certainly wasn’t alone in not realising that at time of entering all three! But not complaining as somehow I came out on top and won some beer #bonus

Sunny Sussex race 1, Abbots Wood 2nd on M55-60 and also on Blue, 4mins down. Had quite a decent lead until I spent over 5mins hunting for the pond at #18. Not sure it was quite right but no-one else seemed to lose as much…

Sunny Sussex race 2, Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne. 3rd M55-60 & 4th Course 2, 1min down (actual time 27:33 after lock gate timeout)
Nice urban/sprint although all pretty straightforward with a lot of legs having minimal route choice. Finish right by a fish&chip shop so 10/10 for how to stage an evening event!
Ran okay although very clear I am lacking top 2/3 gears that come with actually doing proper training. However ir would seem that some people I normally beat can run faster than me…
