Orienteering Race at Meramec State Park

Ran the red (difficult) course at the St. Louis Orienteering Club's race in Meramec State Park yesterday. While I've done a few adventure races, this was my first official orienteering race. The final results haven't been posted yet, but I think I finished in about 2h 30m. The winner probably finished closer to an hour - so I've got a lot of practice ahead of me if I'm going to start making a decent showing.
