Itärastit Kauhala


Had to use a hand-drawn map, since they had run out of printed maps.

Towards #1 I am correctly on course but then run down the hill to some big stones which were not the correct ones. Probably +2 minutes and the second-worst split.

#5 is jointly the best split (with #9), but I would have liked to stay along the edge of the blue swamp and not drift right and high up on the hill.

#10 is the worst split, but a short leg so not that much time lost. Maybe everyone else used the two paths and the flag was clearly visible from the second path?

Overall 10th out of 62 runners which is OK.

#4 didn't cross the blue swamp - it looked quite wet...
#8 looked for the control too soon, in a difficult place on a steep slope
#11 again anticipated the control too soon, even turned back and ran north along the trail for a while. Should have stayed closer to the line, not sure why there is drift to the right just after #10. Why not use the yellow open area as a midway checkpoint?!?
