RouteChoice Challenge: Long decisive leg in Swiss Champs Long

Posted by Jan Kocbach, 20 Aug 2012@5:00

The long leg from control 27 to 28 decided the mens class in the Swiss Championships long distance yesterday. At the start of the leg three runners were fighting for gold: Matthias Kyburz, Matthias Merz and Marc Lauenstein. With good performance on this leg, Kyburz took home the gold medal.

Can you find the “golden solution”? First take a look at the leg (click for larger image), then draw your choice in the WebRoute (without cheating and looking at the “solution”), and finally take a look at the best times run on the leg below.

:-) It is no surprise that the Kyburz Brothers performed strong here. One might remember their great course setting for the Swiss Team Champs back in 2010, in a similar terrain, 10 km northeast of these Swiss Champs.
