Orienteering race (Urban Race) 1:10:46 [4] *** 9.8 km (7:13 / km) +105m 6:51 / km
33c shoes: New Balance M860SB4

The first Brussels Orienteering Meeting, taking advantage of a car free day in the centre of the city. Had the first start (9am) due to running in London later, and also it was raining, so the streets were largely empty. A nice course with a mix of short and long legs, lots of direction changes and some nice views in certain places. Included a short bit by the Grand Place and a control at the Mannekin Pis which was already busy with tourists. Then back to the hostel for a shower, check out and head to the Eurostar. Finished 17th of 32 on Men's Elite. Rain ~14.6km.

Orienteering race (Urban Race) 1:04:57 [4] *** 8.9 km (7:18 / km)
28c shoes: New Balance M860SB4

The 7th London City Race. First time running competitively. Good route choice legs for the first two-thirds of the race, then shorter, more technical legs through the Barbican and the Golden Lane Estate, including a very tricky penultimate leg. Finished 24th of 51 finishers on Men's Elite. Made up 12 places during the Barbican/Golden Lane Estate section, due to knowing the layout of both areas very well! Ran ~13.9km.
