Route to Christmas: Day 16

Todays leg is an interesting leg from the WCOC long distance event in Canada at 8th of October 2007 (Thanks to Louise Osram for the tip!). Courses 10 (elite male) and 9 (elite women/35+ men/19- men) had the same leg.

First take a look at the map without routes – and think about how you would attack this leg (if the map is too small, you may click on it to get it larger – click again outside the map to close it):

Update 2020: WebRoute

Back in 2007 there was no WebRoute in Route to Christmas – this has now been added to all old ‘Route to Christmas’ in March 2020. 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.

Then you can take a look at how the runners who have drawn their route choice solved this leg.

Louise Osram: – You will see some variance between the men, with Brent Langbakk choosing straight while Patrick Goeres and Mike Smith went to the right. Also, if you look at course 9, you will see that Ted de stCroix went left – an unusual route choice.
