Race Evaluation

US Short and Long Championships: Green Y Long


1. +02:30Went straight to the start triangle, then realized the best, really only, route was back through the map pickup. Cut through the woods to get to the open area leading to #1 (too embarrassed to run back through the map pickup) but it was really thick. Once I got to the open area, I had no problem running down to the control--followed the re-entrant to the east of the control.
2. +02:00Just not in good contact when I got to the circle. I thought I saw the flag up ahead and ran up but no flag (must have been another runner). Then tried to find the east border of the fissures but the border wasn't distinct.
4. +00:20Contoured over directly from 3 so was too high.
5. Took the road option.
7. +01:00Cut across the swamp which was dry and no problem. I didn't think you'd be able to see the flag from the trail so I tried navigating and went in too early. Came across the stream but didn't see it on the map so got a little confused. Need to seriously consider some magnification, especially when doing 1:15000 maps
10. Cut across the field and then along the west side of the swamp, which was pretty slow, but no real navigation issue.

Total Time Lost - 00:05:50
