Robert Mason & Matt Bryan ran the BPT out & back, unsupported on 10/18/2014. They started & ended at Watch Hill Rd, so skipped the 2-mile (each way) section thru the Blue Mountain Reservation & therefore did not run the whole route (they did not find the Blue Mtn Res section). Mike reported as follows:
"Did the trail both directions 10 days ago training for our first 50 mile. The trail was very difficult to navigate in several places, so we missed it and found our way back at several points. Our time for the first half, which only ended being about 10 miles and not the 12 claimed was 1h35m32s. The way back was about 10min slower [4h6m11s total RT time]. My Strava data from the day is below as well as a blog post I wrote the day following the experience. This can be done much faster with more route knowledge and experience."
(The full route is 12 miles, and is shown on our map on this page.)
