Evan Honeyfield ran the loop in 5h34m31s on September 17, 2009.
The Matt Hart established a new route circumnavigating the Teton Range of Wyoming, that looks to be an instant classic. It is 33.7 miles with 8,165 feet of gain (according to the topo). Matt did a scouting run with friends, and then two days later (July 29, 2008) ran it for speed in 6h29m.
People are attracted to good ideas. The paint had barely dried on Hart's FKT for the Teton Circuit when the mark was bettered by Idahoans Luke Nelson and Evan Honeyfield, 6h10m11s on September 13, 2008. Like Hart, Nelson and Honeyfield started at the Lupine Meadows parking lot and ran counter-clockwise. Their report gives the following splits along the way: - Hurricane Pass 2h15m3s - Buck Pass 2h56m55s
On 17 September 2009, Evan Honeyfield went back and blasted the circuit in 5h34m31s.
The next time I do it I think I might slow down and take in some of the incredibly awesome scenery!! -- Luke Nelson
Did this in 2006, make sure there is no snow below Buck Mt. Nasty pass. I took too much time taking pictures, and hit the parking lot at Stewart Draw right before dark. I was nervous about running the rest of the route in the dark, and hitched a ride with a ranger. She told me I was very wise, since there have been grizzly sitings in that area. Yikes!
