Event details: Event:20081129

Commentary: The event was a 1 hour score. The start time of 8.10 gave 15 minutes of official daylight, 30 minutes of official civil twilight and 15 minutes of official darkness. Official darkness isn't pitch black, so next year the start will be 8.20! There were 22 controls for a total distance of 16 kilometres. No-one was going to get all the controls within the hour. This ensured that even the elite runners would be out in the dark. A bonus point system for the first to arrive at each of the five controls around the start managed to split the pack, so most people were running solo or in pairs. Bryan Keely grabbed the highest score, despite managing to arrive back a little late. He went on the east loop and this turned out to be the best strategy. Evan and David Burch took the west loop. This had the same point density and distance as the other loop, but it left a more difficult task to clean up the low scoring controls around the start in the last 10 minutes. Jymbo ran with Bryan, and managed to score fourth, despite being the only elite runner to miss out on a bonus point. His Garmin reccorded 13.2 kilometres! The southern bonus controls were grabbed by Toph and James. This was the least optimal exit route.
