I enjoyed my first Brown - navigationally it was mostly a clean run with the final navigation into controls in the woods improving as the course went on. Like quite a few people I feel foul of the undergrowth looking better on the map than in reality between 15 and 16 (43 & 44) - ultimately abandoning the shortcut to go around (which turned out to be a lovely route that guided you into the control), and I also ended up on the wrong parallel track at one point needing a bit of extra running to correct. Where I struggled the most was running up and down the hill! Overall, I enjoyed the course and I am happy with my 9th place just ahead of @Jeff.Pakes who was taking it easy before Scottish 6 Days.

Really enjoyed my run, though could have done with the weather being cooler.
One benefit of walking uphill 2-3 was planning out the route for the rest of the course.

I mostly dropped right into every control. One instance of a parallel path but didn’t loose much time on it.
8-9 I had two choices. I really wanted to drop down and contour round below the woods. But I got worried the rough open wouldn’t be runnable and took a path up and over. As it turned out, the rough open was very runnable so would have been a lot less effort than the route I took.

Yes that initial hill was not joyful.

We had a control between your 8-9 off the big track to the north so it was a much more obvious route choice for us to drop down.

Thanks for the Routegadget link. So far no-one on Green went down on the 8-9, which makes me feel better.
