Third Thursday Adventure Series
10/18/07 Forest 44
Lots of fun out in the woods at night! David arrived a few minutes late and tore off
after the pack. He caught Jeff at the first control but despite taking divergent routes,
the two stayed even the rest of the way. David took the sprint in from the last control.
The combination of trail speed and night visibility had everybody turned around at one
point or another. The first leg was the source of the greatest difficulties which
is hardly surprising as the myriad of small trails are not easy to keep track of at night.
Fortunately, everybody was able to find their way back.
Next month we'll have our longest event of the year: an 8K adventure run at Rockwoods Range.
So we're not out all night, there will be optional controls that you can skip if it looks like you're
not going to make the 2-hour time cutoff.
