Sprint Simulation Krossen.Sprint
The sprint simulation was held at Krossen village. Norwegian sprintmaps are very  different to New Zealand because there aren’t  any close together buildings or tight alleyways. Most buildings are single houses with no fence so is often hard to tell what is out of bounds. We started off on a suburban road but could cut in between houses through the forest. For long route choice legs roads were the best option, as weaving in between houses and forests is much slower. At the end of the course we ran through a kindergarten and got yelled at in Norwegian for not closing the gate (& they were worried the children would escape!) so the last runners weren’t able to complete the course. It was still a useful and fun simulation. We then all swam in the lake which was warmer than 2 days ago.
Todays activities consisted off painting nails, card games and making sure we had the highest flag out of all the countries at the Vierli Tourist cabins.
We won 😉
