Route to Christmas: Day 23 2010

For the second last day in Route to Christmas 2010 we return to Czech Republic. The leg is from SAXBO 2010 in stony terrain in Czech Republic with quite some hills. Leg number 2 from the H21L course is chosen. The event was organized on May 1st 2010. Today we return to a Routegadget leg – tomorrow we are back with another one with GPS-data…

Thanks a lot to Jens Leibiger, Nils Schmiedeberg and Wieland Kundisch for drawing their routes on request! The leg is as usually first provided without routes – you may take a look at it and think about how you would attack this leg (if the image is too small, you may click on it to get it larger). The leg offers several options – you have to take into account both runnability, paths and contours…


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. As you can see, Martin Janata was the fastest on this leg of the ones drawing their route – choosing the southernmost variant – following the paths as much as possible. This southern route has the best entrance to the control – and avoids most of the green. If you run this event – please add a comment below to let the other readers know about the best solution.
