I knew that I would be unable to follow the faster/younger guys (and ladies!) on this race, particularly since I had just run (and won) the county corporate championship.

This was a mass start, some people went straight but most took the road like me to start but then I was the only one taking the smaller paths, everyone else went further north-east before cutting over. The second half of the leg to #1 has all been logged, leaving lots of slash behind so I believe it would have been faster to take the road up past the creek, then cut over north of the small dangerous marsh and then take the paths to where the line between 6 & 7 crosses them. Running downhill in this slash my left leg got caught and in an instinctive effort to try to save a tumble I janked my right foot forwards. Doing that I hit a rock or tree stump with my right big toe, very similar to the injury I suffered on the final day of WMOC in Denmark.

I kept running/jogging and mostly found OK routes until I left the path too late on #9 and lost one minute there. In the end I was 6-8 minutes behind the guys I usually compare myself to and 12+ minutes after Rune Scheele who won _every_ leg except the final finish run, he is very fit these days.
