Ås by Night & Fog Cup #9 (13/03/2018)
Category: Competition
Map/area: Tårnåsen, Kolbotn
Distance: 6.32 km
Time: 51:01
Second race of the evening: I arrived at the event parking about 40 minutes after finishing the Ski-O event above Holmenkollen, so now I just had to put on orienteering shoes and a fresh night-O lamp.

I made a pretty close to perfect race I still lost several minutes to the first 3 controls so my legs were obviously quite tired.

The race map had green ski-O overprint on all the paths in the forest that were nicely trampled by local hikers (probably dog owners!), my seemingly strange route to#2 was due to such a path shown on the map.

I think my route to #5 was optimal even though I had to start in the wrong direction, to #6 Livelox tracking shows people running north first down to the main road, that had to be a bad choice.

I took a chance on the main path to #7 being well trodden, that turned out to be true.

My biggest route risk was to #10 where I decided to go straight instead of taking the paths around to the north, since it was mostly downhill I believe this was OK, the split times don't seem to point to a clear winner here.
