Contour practice.

You’ll see a small map. On it will be a purple line arrow. You then have 4 height profile diagrams. You need to pick which one matches the purple line on the map.

In this example ‘D’ is the correct answer.

For each leg that you get correct, you get 60 points minus the time (in seconds) that you took.

At the end, you’ll be ranked by the number of points you get.
