In 2007 it took two old guys 11 hours, at a moderate pace, taking pictures and eating food to measure the course.  Most Participants beat this time, despite a raging storm! In 2008 ALL participants finished in great weather in under 10 hours and the fast, fit guys could do it in under 7 hours. There are cut-off times at three locations to help you understand your progress. If you don't make the cutoff time to each of these locations, you don't proceed for safety reasons.
