we ran Mauna Kea yesterday (Monday, 15.10.2012) starting at the Visitor Information Station. Like the other attempts stated in this forum we took the route starting at the visitor center running up and down Mauna Kea using the car dirt road.
We herby report a new record by Fabian Eberhard in a time of 2:49:03.
As soon as we are back home in Germany we will provide the GPS data to prove the new record.
We attempted the new FKT in a team of two but only Fabian broke the record, pulling away at about mile 6.5 in the uphill. It took him about 1:55 hrs for the climb and 54 mins for the downhill. Our run was completely self-supported.
The conditions were mostly sunny with some clouds and a little wind. The temperature at the visitor center when we left was about 65°.
The attached picture shows the record as displayed on the Garmin. As said above, we will provide full details once we return to Germany in about 10 days.
