Notes

The first speed run of the TRT took place before the trail was completely finished. Robert Sobsey, Rolland Martin and Joe Braninburg ran the route in 66h20m on September 13-15, 2000. For an article in the Tahoe Daily Tribune, Braninburg said this:

To me it's just amazing to have something like that so close to us. It's so accessible. I can't compliment the people enough who have worked on it. It's just a dynamite trail. The view from Freel Peak is the most spectacular view I've ever seen in my life. You look down the center of the Sierra and I swear you can see Mount Whitney. The vistas and scenery up there are incredible, and hell, you can run in chest-high wildflowers and on the west side you run by lake after lake. -- Joe Braninburg
