I was inspired by Ben Brown (round-trip FKT holder) and ran this during an evening weekday to avoid crowds. I carried a small amount of Gu Roctane, an emergency blanket, phone, mask, and a headlamp in a small race vest. The last few miles were in the dark. With the headlamp, and smooth trails near the end, the footing wasn't too much of a problem (the overgrown section earlier was much more difficult). I saw two other trail users in the first 3 miles, then nobody else. I biked very slowly on the road back to my car.
