Stephanie Ehret and Peter Bakwin did the Paria from White House TH to Lee's ferry in 9h17m on March 27, 2007. Bakwin reported their run as follows:

This was a steady effort, but not hammering -- we were just trying to get it done in a day. We left our car at Lee's Ferry and got a shuttle from Betty Price up to Whitehouse early in the morning. The canyon was flowing, and we were constantly having to wade the creek up to our ankles or shins, which made for slow going. Weather was perfect, not at all hot this early in the season and there were even a few snow flakes late in the day. There are many natural springs along this route, and I think except for the last 12 miles or so I needed to carry only one small water bottle. The last miles leave the bottom of the canyon and follow a good trail, very nice running. This is an excellent route for a 1-day wilderness run! -- Peter Bakwin
