Another good Geoform ranking race, won the medium length course by about 5 min due to making less mistakes than the rest. I lost 30+ sec when I passed the first control just a few meters too far north, otherwise I believe I had near-optimal routes and good execution.

The only exception would be the few seconds of hesitation before #9 where I stopped by a small unmapped cliff just underneath the control circle.

Up to #2 I ran along the ridge, this was very good since it allowed me to follow a brand new (MTB?) path, and then I contoured into the control.

Simplified #3 by taking the path all the way to where I spotted the pond.

Optimal route to #4, cut across to the straight-line path and then I took the marshy valley until it got too narrow, but at this spot there was an animal trail up to the path.

Took straight line routes to #5 & 6, found partial trails through most of the denser stuff.

I considered going straight to #7 as well, but decided I needed a mental rest so I just followed the path until the light green reentrant leading into the control. As usual on Norwegian maps, this was old planted spruce forest, so quite runnable indeed.

Hesitated a few seconds alongside the marshland when I hit a knoll which was almost totally obscured by the course print, but after finding it on my map I knew I was exactly on course.

I ran along the path for a while to #9, as mentioned above this is where I hesitated the most near the control.

Straight to #10, then a very long hill/ridge run down to #11.

Easy to the last control except for getting through the lush green vegetation in the final marsh.
