WUOC – Gene Beveridge: First 2 days in Czech

Renee and Gene

I flew into Prague on Monday and took the train to Olomouc. Transport here seems to run really smoothly and I got all the way to the accommodation by just following my nose. Most of the team were already settled in and had been training already. The accommodation is in a student residence block with all the facilities we need and I think it will be really fun once all the other teams are here too.

I ran my first training on Tuesday which was relevant to the WUOC middle distance with very little contour detail and a patchwork of varying vegetation. Most of the green areas were as shown and the dark green had to be taken seriously. The map felt pretty old as a few of the denser areas had opened and most of the stumps had rotted away. Looking at the old version of the race area I think we will have more open forest on race day. Hopefully more like this!
