I didn't want to run here, having read the event info which recommended full body cover, including arms, warned the lantana had grown thickly, paths were overgrown and that you should presume all veg on the map is thicker than mapped. But we were well short of folk, so thought I'd better get involved, not that I really helped with an awful run.
To be honest, the veg wasn't actually that bad for most of it, but I didn't really have a great mindset from the off about it and my body was struggling with the fast easy early controls. Scrappy at 3, missed at 5 and then a big miss at 6, must have just missed sight of the control on my first attempt, then spent ages hunting around further down the hill.
Got caught in crap veg at 8, and was just struggling physically particularly once we got back to the fast easy stuff at the end. Finished a long way off the pace.
