Route to Christmas: Day 14

Todays leg is leg 8 from the long distance at the Junior World Orienteering Champs in Australia this year. The route choice drawing + splits is prepared by Christian Bobach – thanks a lot to Christian! – Australian granit terrains kan make som realy good route choice legs – like the 8th leg on this years long distance at JWOC in Australia, Christian commented after reading Neil Barr’s comment on Route to Christmas Day 9: – None of the events on our more technical granite and mining terrains produced interesting route choice outcomes..

  1. Yes, one of the best legs on an Australian course in 2008. JWOC wasn’t on our Gadget so I didn’t report it. I ran the same leg in the spectator race and made the same sub-optimal choice as Christian!
