What went wrong this week?
For the record, the long run was measured by Mapsource at about 6k but with the 8Fs and 2X's added expanded to a tolerable 7.5k. However the short run which by Mapsource should have been 4.2k was logged on Sex Teacher's GPS as just over 5k, so the long run may have been a little longer.
But everybody made the beer stop within an hour. Despite LotL's complaint about going up too many hills, the long run didn't scale either of the two available peaks, skirting around both for a maximum height around the 4th 360 of 251m with a total ascent sans Fs and Xs of about 280m .For much of the long run the in and out trails were less than 200m apart and at no point were the two trails more than 600m apart so that the area enclosed was only 700sqm, surely one of the lowest figures possible for a 6k run. But despite that, short-cutting seemed not to be a major problem as much of that 700sqm was impassible terrain The short run meanwhile hit a creditable 200m.following a fairly well-worn track particularly familiar to Sex Teacher since on her first SH3 run she accidentally did pretty much the same run after missing the turn off for the short run, vowing never to leave the safety of the rescue vehicle and certainly never to return to the hash. Yesterday as well as leading the short run pack round, she was also the only one to then add the walk out to the beer stop which sadly did not service.the short runners. A worthy performance from SH3's GM!
