Option B above was in the frame right up to the last minute - I particularly liked leg 2-3 (at least 5 alternative routes), but leg 6-7 was thought to contain too much dead running.
Aside is the first part of Course 1 we 'lost' one week before the event - after the maps had been printed!
And below is the first part of the 'lost' Course 2, which has a slightly different start.
In the event's final details, I advised competitors not to expect another 'Guildford' race - the area was never going to be as technical - but did it make for a good sprint race?
After looking at other recent events on websites and in 'Orienteering Today', I do still think that it was quite good (despite the 'disappointing' comments from some!!)
