Matt Picard and Thom Gennaro completed a "Double (double) Traverse" of the Skyline trail in Blue Hills in 7h44m20s. The result can be found here: www.movescount.com/moves/move99600998 
They started at the base of the Skyline South Trail by the Ranger Station and ran the sections to the West first. They descended on North Skyline. On the return trip, they ascended North Skyline and descended South so that over the course of the run they had ascended and descended each part of the trail. They followed the descriptions provided above as to start and stop points. The weather was not favorable; wet rocks made for much slower descents than usual, and the rain interfered with vision. The pair supported themselves using a car as an aid station to change clothes.
