Michael and I ran the entire loop from start to finish together with no outside support. We carried all our water and food in our running packs. We each carried 3L of water and enough calories for every hour planned on course and an additional 3 hours worth of calories for emergency. Two sections of the GPS may look slightly different than the original posted FKT. One is at about 21km where we got a bit lost, but after looking at his GPX file on two different applications, we realized his GPS signal must have been off because it was in the middle of a very dense forest with no track to follow, we found the actual track which was properly signed and followed the same shape as his run. Also, at about the 32km, there was a large open field which the original route ran through. We ran slightly of course there as it was meant to be on the right side of the field but we had to run along the left side in order to avoid a field full of wild life so as not to disrupt them.
