You can see the event map with the actual routes traveled by participants, and draw your own route for comparison, in the RouteGadget (introduction; this event (http://baoc.org/gadget/cgi/reitti.cgi?act=map&id=190)).
Given the challenges with e-punch at this event, it has been set up using the "no results" mode where competitors need to enter their name, total time, and any cumulative splits that they might have. Note that if you are uploading a GPS track, you don't need to enter your total time or any of the splits.
You can draw your route even if you didn't take any splits, just enter your name and total time. Note that RouteGadget requires cumulative splits. Both splits and total time need to be in MMMSS format. For example, 57s is entered as "57", 5min43s as "543", and 1hr12min32s as "7232".
After painstaking forensics on myriad little snippets of data from hither and yon, I've managed to piece together the following approximation of results from last weekend's relays at Las Trampas. Please let me know if you have anything to add or correct.
Congratulations to Team Kopisch (twins Philipp and Daniel Kopisch, and their father Manfred), the only team to complete all 6 loops of the relay according to the rules! They are listed in first place in the table below, which also shows all the other teams listed by place according to the following informal criteria:
- Highest priority was assigned to teams that completed the greatest number of loops in strict succession (i.e., consecutive loops in which one loop's runner started only after the previous loop's runner finished).
- If there was a tie for successive loops, priority was given to the fastest total time on those loops.
Control #4 on Short Loop 1 was shown on the maps with control code 61, when in fact control code 34 was actually used. This caused considerable confusion among the competitors. For this reason, #4 was treated as an "unfair control" in the results: Splits 3-4 and 4-5 on Short Loop 1 were made absolutely equal among all runners, which effectively eliminates that control as a competitive element in the course, while still maintaining it as part of the course so that runners can draw their routes with RouteGadget (http://baoc.org/gadget/cgi/reitti.cgi?act=map&id=190).
When handed these very sparse results, for what amounts to a 52-control race, WinSplits Online did something a little weird. To view the mangled, contorted mass of splits, go here (http://www.obasen.nu/winsplits/online/en/show_event.asp?id=12927).
