Sunday Route Choice Puzzle: Czech Sprint

Today’s Sunday Route Choice Puzzle is a from a Czech training camp last weekend where they ran a few interesting sprint courses which have since been published along with split times and an analysis of the route-choices by Czech Coach Radek Novotny.

Here only one of the legs is provided – but below I also provide links to the complete courses and analysis.
The puzzle is as usually first provided without routes – you may take a look at it and think about how you would solve it (if the image is too small, you may click on it to get it larger).


Next you can draw your own route using the ‘Webroute’ below. Think through how you would attack it, and draw the route you would have made. Some comments about why you would choose a certain choice are always nice for the other readers.

Then you can take a look at the routes of the runners analysis provided by Radek Novotny. As you can see, running the direct/right variant is the fastest here.

Here are full courses and analysis (in Czech). A lot of interesting legs here – definitely worth taking a look at if you are interested in some theoretical sprint training.
