Hey, I've been wanting to catch up with Hotoven and Elichten to tell you guys that you missed a fun day. The organizers did a re-route, which increased the total distance to 36.2 miles. The re-route, south of Downingtown, added some nice scenery. It was a decent day, started overcast, then the sun came out at about 10 or 11 AM. Several of us started running together. I was surprised to finish in front of everyone else in 5h51m. All in all there were 80-90 participants, perhaps 15 runners, the rest hikers. The event was well-organized and supported by the Wilmington Trail Club. My new buddy Marty wrote an excellent trip report that you can read at http://www.delawarerunningclub.org/pdf/be2e.pdf
if you wish. Marty and Bruce cut a bit of distance off the full course 'cause they got tired but had a great time anyway. Hope to hike/climb with you guys some time soon!
