Dang, you guys are crazy for doing that. 46 miles in a day! Rim-river-rim in a day is still pretty good, but double that is pretty amazing.

Re: Crazy

Actually... crazy is the group I ran with last night. They did the R2R2R in October and one of their folks ran it in under 8 hours (all 46 miles)!!!

But yeah, this thing really hurt me! I could barely walk for days...

Re: Ditto.

Thanks rpc! It was a bit of a sufferfest :-)

I hiked this in 17 hr 55min including stops, I was feeling pretty good about myself if a marathon runner only beat me by 25min. and then I saw in the comments section some dude ran it in 8 Holy Shizazzle!!

Wow... I just did this yesterday in 12h15, and felt pretty thrashed by the end. Did you come back and break 15? How did you figure the calories? I packed about 3000, and that seemed like enough (though more electrolytes might have helped at the end).

Re: 8h?!

Yeah, I ran sub-14 this year. I think if I stop screwing around (like the hour long siesta at Phantom Ranch while sipping two lemonades) I can get close to 12 hours.

The record is now held by Dave Mackey at 6:57 round trip!

Re: 8h?!

I'm not sure the overprice Tecate helped me, but it didn't cost me too much time. Dave Mackey's 6:57 is both impressive and humbling.
