About +11 to +13C with a cold-ish wind. After the first start at 11:00 they were out of maps by 12:00 - thus this less than ideal hand-drawn map. Quite good from the start towards the south, but then a few mistakes, J-curves and loops towards the end. I'm happy this course didn't have controls in the top left corner which has way too many map symbols... Around 65 min with maybe 10 min of mistakes.
Warm +18C. Quite easy course/map.
#4 is the best split (top-ten), about 2/3rds along paths and then up the hill to the control. #9 is the worst split, didn't find a clear path through the field and the lack of fitness sets in towards the end of the course. 20th out of about 85 overall.
T-shirt weather (warm for this spring!) and a course that avoids the boring fields on the left half of the map. A bit wrong down the hill to #4, then past #5 to the road and back.
Good challenging course on an easy map. No compass. Windy and cold with more rain, wind, and snow forecast for the afternoon.
A loop past #1, then bit too far past #2, again a loop at #6.
Cityscape orienteering on a 1:7500 map where features approach you sooner than you think.
Long running legs to #1, #3, and #5 to get the body warmed up and oxygen flowing. My route-choice towards #6 looks quite crooked, straighter might have been faster. After #7 there was a control visible higher up which I had to check out before realizing it wasn't #8 😉 Out of #9 it looked like a good idea to run straight under the water-tower (cross-hatched disk on the map) but in reality there was a fence or gate..
No GPS so a hand-drawn map instead 😉
OK run until #3, then too soon up into the hill (before the steep cliff) for #4. #6 was maybe the most difficult.
Warm +21C or so.
Mostly good running speed on a fairly simple map/course.
Probably +3 minues at #2, not finding the planned southern path between #1-#2. After that quite OK until a bit of hesitation approaching #8.
Down the hill towards #1 too soon. Also too low before #5. Not a great direction out of #6.
Warmer maybe +12C or so with a bit of sun.
Cold +5C and a bit of rain.
Orienteering season is here again. An easy start on a 1:7500 city map. Fitness and pace is low...
