New FKT for Uinta Highline Trail - 28:16:

I (Chad Brackelsberg) ran the Leidy Peak Trailhead to Hayden Pass Trailhead on August 29-30 in 28:16. I ran the first 20 miles with Mark Christopherson, then ran solo the rest of the route. I stayed on the new Highline Trail (025) without taking any of the older trails. I believe this added some distance to the route. My total distance was 81.3 miles and ~15,000’ climbing. This may be about 1 mile extra with getting off trail a few times. The trail requires very good navigation (especially at night) as it is not well marked or travelled. For more details of the run, see my blog post at brackblogs.sharepnt.com/archive/2010/09/01/Highline-Trail-Run.aspx [link broken]
