Golden Goat Course   Golden Kid Course   Yellow Course   White Course

Oct. 23 Update: 
The Finish controls were not in sync, so the times for about 35 runners were off by 8 seconds. Also, there were a couple of "estimated" finish times. The results below include those corrections. The only place change was Steve Gregg moved above Marie-Josée Parayre (by 1 second!).

In addition to the results below, you can see control-by-control timing in the WinSplits results (http://www.obasen.nu/winsplits/online/en/show_event.asp?id=85762). (However, with the skipped controls, the WinSplits results are "weird" for the Goat and Kid [e.g., alphabetical order instead of place order]. But you can see which controls were skipped.)

You can see the event map with the actual routes traveled by participants, and draw your own route for comparison, in RouteGadget for this event (http://baoc.org/gadget/cgi/reitti.cgi?act=map&id=503). (Use of RouteGadget is explained here.)

Tapio’s RouteGadget Comments:
  • Animation with the option to skip one control looks great. Take a look and upload your own route!
  • RouteGadget handles Goats and Score-O’s nicely, as it has the option to use split times to determine the order in which each competitor visited the controls. In a way, each competitor makes their own course.
  • RouteGadget Tip: After uploading your GPS track to RouteGadget, you can create additional blue adjustment points by right-clicking your track. You can use these points to better align your route with the map, for example, along trails. You can delete extra adjustment points by right-clicking them.
  • My time, according to my watch, was ~2 min faster than the official time. So, when uploading my route, I had to set the time offset to ~120 seconds to make my GPS track match my route better. You will probably need to do the same.

Please tell and the if anything needs to be changed in the results.
