I'm planning (health dependent) on doing an out-and-back on the Silver Comet Trail in early September. I haven't come across any info on someone doing either the full length, or an out-and-back on the entirety of the trail. I'll be starting at mile 0, going to the GA-AL line at mile 61.5, then returning back to mile 0 for a total of ~123 miles. Not 100% sure whether this will be a self-supported or supported attempt yet, I will update closer to the time of the attempt. Regardless, let me know if y'all have heard of anyone doing this/want to be a part of it. The more the merrier!
Ah I wish. I was just looking back and remembered I didn't post an update on here.
I started off at night in Smyrna which led to a few more hurdles than I was prepared for. The largest being that 'technically' you're not supposed to use the trail at night and I was running in very close proximity to people's homes late at night. It proved to be pretty sketchy. I called a ride after a few hours and haven't been back yet.
However, I am looking to go back for a point-to-point sometime this year (during daylight hours). Most likely starting at the Alabama line and ending at mile 0 in Smyrna. I'll post here again when those plans are more concrete!
