Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Smallest A-meet area ever?One of the cool things about the third day of the GLOF was how much orienteering the course setter (Mike Waddington?) managed to squeeze in to a small area.
The entire competition area was about 1,200 meters by 800 meters (just under one square kilometer). The top women ran the course in about 50 minutes and the top men in 55-60 minutes. I think that is about normal for an F21 A-meet and a bit short for an M21 A-meet.
The courses were forked. M21 ran three loops while F21 (and M35) ran two loops. The race was a mass start and the courses were forked using the "Farsta" method.
Check out the complete course here.
Has an A-meet ever been held in a smaller area? posted by Michael | 6:52 PM
