Coach Andrew warned us that the courses were going to be slippery and not of word of that was a lie! There were three courses, short-medium-long. The difference between short and medium was only 400 meters, which made us suspect the medium offered other challenges To spare her knee Jana opted for the short course, and did a great job finishing third. Julien and Laoise ran together, fortunately, and struggled their way through endless pools of mud. They missed the last control and sadly did not finish, but would have gotten 22nd/23rd with their time. Christoph coached Catherine around the medium and they too bravely withstood the landslides and muddy hills they had to face to get to the controls. They finished 29th and 30th. Andrew didn't even bother do his course with all the mud and steep hills and instead helped out others.
Thank you all for your efforts, we hope you had a fun day and hope to see you at the next event!
