I started on the west end on January 24th at 10:34 AM finishing at 5:58 PM. I chose this direction mainly so I could use the water fountains at the halfway point. It was an awesome day to run the route with prime temps so I only brought 2 L each way and a bit of food to fuel me through the rocky steep terrain of the National Trail. Around 3,000 ft of elevation on the way out and approximately 2,600 east to west. The whole run felt pretty good with no major lows, one fall and tired legs but besides that the body held up. Lots of mountain bikers and hikers out in the 5 miles closest to pima and after that not too many soles. 10/10 recommend the route and be ready for constant focus on the rocks under you :)
