7:40:31 is the new FKT time. Joffrey Peters and Jeremy Merritt ran the route together.
Sam Price's time was very hard to best, and, he was spot on that the run approximates a very tough 50k race effort.
I would love to do this again in the cooler autumn weather--it was not very hot when we ran, but very humid.
We both carried Katadyn BeeFree water filtration soft flasks, which you don't have to wait for. These things are a godsend.
