Description

Start at the Timpooneke trailhead, follow the Mount Timponogos Trail #053 to the summit, and back.  There is a Strava Segment which starts & ends at the first trail junction, where there is a TH information sign.  This is where Trail #053 begins, and seems to be where people start & stop their times.  Note that Jason Dorais has the fastest time on Strava, 2h16m13s Aug 18, 2016, but this has not been submitted to us.

Don’t mean to burst your bubble, but this is over thirty minutes off the RT. You linked the strava segment In the description that includes a time by Jason Dorais that is 2:16. Would love to see that added as that is the true FKT. 

My apologies, I forgot to add (unsupported): 20 ml nathan handheld containing water+2 gels

Hey, didn't break the actual FKT held by Jason, but got pretty close, a lot closer than the current listed times. 2:18:17 roundtrip parking lot to parking lot. This was unsupported as well.

I will be taking a more serious attempt at the record(s) in a couple weeks.

I also have the GPX file, but am not sure how to submit it.
