Will be taking a shot at this tomorrow unsupported. It's my chance to honor/memoralize Bob "Iceman" Coolidge the best way I know how for a fellow Marine. Sweat, tears and who knows with these long distance runs, maybe a little blood. #HeroesNeverDie #Iceman #MURCA #MajorCane

Would love to make an attempt at this route.  On the canal utility trail there are alot of "no trespassing" signs. Looking a property maps, much of it seems private property.  Any issues while running on the trail?

Several locations were posted at the time of us running it also. It may be posted, but the banks are taken care of by the state, and several sections are currently greenway. We ran it out of hunting season to avoid hunters who have stands along the route, just in case there were an issue and to not make runners look bad.(After January and before October) The rest of it is also a proposed greenway route for the county to connect them all from town to town. We never had any issues, and I've never had any issues along the route. I've known one group to get kicked off while on a fun run, but they were warned that day not to run it by other runners, and ran it during hunting season anyway. Just be smart for the time you decide to run it, and respectful if approached (highly unlikely). Link to Pitt County greenways and proposed:
