Although my participation in this competition was under question, because of planning the travel to the place where the competition was held, in the end I had the pleasure of taking part in Juniper Open. I say pleasure because it really was. I haven’t ran on such a demanding map since Croatia Open in 2010, and the challenges the land raised were very interesting. The map was technical, and in the first day, I have made lots of mistakes, both because of distance, and because of orienteering (some of them so silly mistakes), especially due to lack of technical training. From my point of view the competition was successful: the map was technical, had demanding routes, the area was interesting, and vegetation that has not grown properly yet, sometimes was more confusing than helpful.
Below are maps that I ran:
