This weekend was the Capricorn Mountain Marathon. A two day long orienteering event with the central campsite near Glossop in Derbyshire. Richard and I competed in the A and C courses respectively. I chose the C course on the basis of our impending holidays being rather physical (6 days orienteering in Scotland followed by a week cycling on Harris and Lewis). The courses went over Kinder Scout and also Alton Moor and were somewhat hilly and rather peaty. My course covered 18km on the first day (straight line) and 12k on the second. Richard did rather more, covering about 27k on the first day and 18k on the second: of course we covered much greater distances than these as a straightline was never the best route. Richard came a fab 2nd in the A course and I was 2nd women on the C (5th overall).
