From trailturkey, April 29, 2013:

I’ve have done a lot of research into double crossing attempts via the internet and email correspondence with the race management of the LHU who have extensive knowledge of the trail. I have only been able to find one person who has reported a double crossing. On Memorial Day weekend in 1986 Art Moore completed an out-and-back double crossing of the trail starting and finishing in Ohiopyle. Art’s family provided support for the effort by crewing aid stations at road crossings and pacing him through some of the sections. Art completed the distance in a blazing 35:58:30. The effort was cataloged in the September issue of Ultrarunner Magazine. I have obtained a copy of the article and it is a very good read.
