Track Length is the cumulative distance between track points from Takeoff to Landing.

You can change the default units displayed - see the Options page.

A light and fluffy day with signs of gnarly snow showers nestled in areas in front and behind the hill.

Fabio, Joe and myself were determined to get to Worcester and beyond. Conditions had not yet overdeveloped. We launched into gentle thermals along with a readymade gaggle of OXAs. Fabio and Joe pushed hard and lead out. A keen headwind slowed our progress. 30 mins in and only about halfway there, the cloud over Worcester was spitting snow!

Conditions were choppy and the prospect of flying in snow sapped my motivation so I opted to head back. Back at launch, pings from the retrieve group make it clear I didn't miss too much: -)
