Big mistake on #9, where I stopped at the wrong cliff/hill, and the control was just to the right, but I did a big loop left before realizing this.
Otherwise mostly OK going in terrain that was much easier to run in compared to 2014 in Kuopio.
2nd leg of Kuopio-Jukola. Quite hilly terrain with soft&stony ground which was difficult to run on.
#4 drifted down the hill to the wrong control, then ran past my own control and backtracked to find it.
#5 past the control down the hill to the swamp, then back up the hill again.
#8 again found the wrong control before my own.
Here's the distribution of total time for teams in the Jämsä-Jukola relay:
Here are the distributions of individual times for the seven legs of the relay.
The histogram from the first leg shows bunching of runners into groups - this is different from all the remaining legs.
The 4th and 5th legs are shorter and faster.

I ran the second stage (13 km) of the Jukola relay in Jämsä on Sunday.
Clear skies and a more northerly location meant there was much more light during the whole night. Not nearly as pitch-black as I remember in Vantaa last year.
Since there are about 1600 teams competing there will be tracks from 2000 or more runners in the forest when starting the 2nd-stage from about mid-way or worse down the field. This means it's really more trail-running than independent orienteering 🙂 There are tracks to and from each control - you just have to pick the right track among many.
