Mini-mountain marathons are long-course score orienteering races over hilly terrain. Finding the best route is an NP-hard
combinatorial optimization problem known as the Orienteering Problem.
This study's objective was about whether top finishers took similar routes, whether speed or route-planning acumen was more important, and how close to optimal route choice was by experienced competitors.
