If you run in the 10hr range you will be elite company. Course record is 10.26 and only 3 have a sub 11 (including Spud's 10.52 of last year). 12 foot all time list.

This run always seems to fall on my son's birthday weekend of 9/8. If it was the weekend before or after I'd be a starter.

Must get around to updating that list to include both runs last year. (rebel run too)

Whoah - are you trying to kill me?

:(  :D

BLY - I said under 14 hours.

Just to repeat - BLY and I will be there and we'll be aiming for sub 14 hours.

I'll be bringing a headlamp and spare batteries though.  :D

Actually - looking at the all time list I think sub 15-16 hours will be more like it.  

Seems as though most people do 45% of their total time on the way to JC then 55% of total time on the way back to ET.

Faster times overall are closer to 50/50 though.

I was updating the Manly to Palm Beach page on the website, so I added 12 foot to the calander (run #83) and updated the 12 Foot Page as well.

Um, noone else has stuck their hand up for the shorter version of just Six Foot yet - so I will start things there.  I'm a tentative for either Six Foot or some variation of out/back on the trail.   :(

Actually, when is Willy to Billy - this one will also be a bit dependant on that, as I want to run W2B again this year.

Willy to Billy is two weeks later and I plan on doing that as well. :D
Just go for it as a long hit out of 90KMs for a 35KM race. :(
