John said that the event today was great fun. The forest was very tough to run through, with the map featuring a lot of contour and rock detail with all shades of green and shorter sections of white and rough open.  Even the white had some low branches with the leaves making long distance visibility impossible.  Careful use of the compass was essential.

Unfortunately on the longer courses there was a slightly off position control, which caused some people to lose a bit of time. As a result of a protest, the organisers have removed times for legs before and after the misplaced control (to a total of about 9 minutes)
