Adventurous Sunday-long: Rejtek -> Felsőtárkány
Sunday, February 1, 2009 2:50:14 PM
We were today quite a big team at the long training, and as some of us missed this training after the January training camp - now we did IT. For some it was Pazsag - Felsőtárkány, for more brave it was Répáshuta - Felsőtárkány, and for Adam and me: we ran from Rejtek down there. (It is actually at the Eger GP finish so 2km-s closer than Felsőtárkány).
From Rejtek it was beginning with a 2,2 km / 170 cl. loop with 5 controls - including a good route choice between controls 2 and 3. Adam went on the north, me on the south, he was ~ 0:25 earlier there.
After we finished this course (20:18)we ran towards Répáshuta. It should be some 3,6 km from the finish but somehow we missed the yellow path leading there so we had to corrigate some 1,5 km-s running to the north on the asphalt road to catch Répáshuta(45'). Than an other course followed - including a leg (3-4) which lead through the Pazsag- valley! I counted some 145 meters climb only in that leg.
After reaching Pazsag (tot:76:10 course:30:15) we ran on the older Gyökeres- tető map an other course leading us to Táskás-rét - almost the northest part of the Eger GP map (Csipkés-tető). (94:50 course:18:34)
And from here after some 2,5 km route following there was a last course with route choices leading to the FINISH.
As I didn't want to run more than 2 hours before the national team training camp coming next week I didn't take the last 4 controls of the final course - even so I had a net time of 118 minutes. Finally I managed to calculate climb data: Total 1060m, I took 860m (last cut), those who run from Répáshuta:780m, and from Pazsag: 450m. I must say thank you to Árpád for the idea, Krissz for putting control flags there and to Laci for printing the Rejtek maps.
