I just finished running the La Cloche Trail in Killarney yesterday. My time was 9hrs 25min 45sec for the full trail, including the 3 narrows section. I ran it with Ryan Atkins and he finished with a time of 10hr 45mins. As far as I know that is the fastest time for the trail. It is 80km in length and one of the hardest trails in Eastern Canada. Full recap of the run will be up soon at: www.mountainaddictathlete.com/Mountain_Addict_Athlete/Blog_Twitter.html

I ran this Last Halloween.... not a recommended time of year..... the combination of lack of daylight, freshly fallen leaves, persistent rains and high winds create less than ideal running conditions. READ: You're gingerly stepping along as everywhere you step has the equivalent traction to ice.
It was 'fun', and I aim to return under ideal conditions to significantly drop my time. Searching for rock cairns in the dark (it was fall so half of the run was at night), chews away at your time too. Summer to early fall is likely your best window to run it. Ample daylight, no leaves and it tends to be drier.
