On November 6, 2021 I ran the Grand Portage Trail again. I finally made Strava segments so I could search for previous times and it looked like 2:52 was roughly the time to beat. I started at 9:51am from the eastern trailhead sign. I took it easy on the way out so I could have something left to go for Tim's one way time downhill on the way back. I made it to the river at 12:14, then back to the start by 1:29, taking a pretty good fall 1/10 mile before the finish. The boardwalks were still wet from a light rain and slippery in places. I ran by myself, unsupported. I consumed 8oz of water and 200 calories. I didn't see anyone else on this beautiful November weekend day, with temps in the 50s.
