Centurion Winter 100

I had sub-24 hours in mind this time but a combination of the Ridgeway being quite lumpy, my genius BC marginal gains decision to wear yellow lens cycling glasses (they phase out waymarker glowsticks entirely) and consequently a few too many getting losts meant I limped in at 24:32. Ran just over 103 but orienteering is part of the sport, it's up to you to get that right. Overall not great but not bad either, a good excuse to have another go.
 
Faultless organisation and delivery from Centurion Running as always. Weather was cold but kind with no mud or surface water which was a boost. I really don't know when I'm going to be able to face eating peanut butter again.
