Todays leg in Route to Christmas is a long leg from Switzerland with several route choice options. The event is the 6th National event in Höhronen organized at October 3rd. The leg is from the Men 35 category – as the Men 35 in Switzerland seem to be better than the Men Elite at drawing their routes in Routegadget after the events.
Thanks for Martin Lerjen for the tip – and to Gaudenz S. and Michael E. for drawing their routes on request from Martin to make the analysis more interesting.
Next you can draw your own route using the ‘Webroute’ below. Think through how you would attack this leg, and draw the route you would have made. Some comments about why you would choose a certain route are always nice for the other readers.
Then you can take a look at how the runners who have drawn their route choice solved this leg. If you run the event yourself, please provide some analysis in the comments!
The Men Elite category had a somewhat similar leg. Unfortunately only a few runners have drawn their routechoice – still here it is for you to take a look at.

The ‘Route to Christmas’ series at World of O was very popular the last years – and I’ve therefore decided to continue the series this Christmas as well. If you have got any good legs in RouteGadget from 2010-competitions – or old forgotten ones which are still interesting – please email me the link at Jan@Kocbach.net, and I’ll include it in Route to Christmas if it looks good. Route to Christmas will not be interesting if YOU don’t contribute.
There will be no analysis about the best routechoice for each leg – you can provide that yourself in the comments or in the Webroute. Not all legs are taken for the interesting routechoice alternatives – some are also taken because the map is interesting – or because it is not straightforward to see what to do on a certain leg. Any comments are welcome – especially if you ran the event chosen for todays leg!
Note that there may be some errors in the Routegadget data (sometimes somebody draws a route for another runner just for fun). Please add a comment below if you spot en error.
