LONGER
The format of this event combined basic orienteering with ongoing brain work. Controls numbered “32” > “37” - “41 > 46” - “50” > 55” were used. The pre-marked map showed the location of these 18 controls. What competitors had to do was complete the 6 Triangles which the Code Numbers create.
Suppose you decided to visit “32” first - by adding the 3+2 = 5 - you then had to visit the other 2 corners of the triangle ie their Codes added up to 5 as well - in this case “41” & “50” before visiting “32” again to complete the TRIANGLE & so on. I reckon this came to a run of nearly 6k.
