What a Christmas Day. I finally managed to run my "Double Presidential Traverse Xmas Run" starting at Mt Clinton Rd parking (Crawford Notch) and summiting all peaks (Pierce, Eisenhower, Franklin, Monroe, Washington, Clay, Jefferson, Adams, Madison) twice. My turnaround was Rte 2 - Appalachia.
Starting time: dec 25, 2015 at 3:25am. Mid-way in 8h09 Second half in 9h10 Total time of 17h19:17
It was an unsupported run. Ground conditions were dry with some patch of ice. It was windy during all day. Colder only at Mt Washington summit and in the evening between Clay and Eisenhower.
My watch has limited battery duration. You'll find the first half of my run + beginning of Valley Way up. Interval #9: is from Appalachia to Jefferson. Interval #10 is from Jefferson to Washington. Interval #11 is from Washington to the end. flow.polar.com/training/analysis/331531050
Started around 10:48 pm 24June2016 Crawford Path trailhead on Rt. 302 to Valley Way trailhead at Rt. 2 (Appalachia) and the usual peaks twice (Pierce, Eisenhower, Monroe, Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison)
Would have been unsupported, but couldn't resist the free leftover pancakes at Madison Hut.
On September 3rd, 2016 I ran the Double Presidential Traverse in 13:04:10, starting and finishing at Crawford Notch. My northbound split was 6:14, descending off Mount Madison to Appalachia on the Watson Path and returning the same way. I'd been hoping to slip in under 13 hours but didn't push hard enough on the final descent down the Crawford Path. Still, it was nice to do the whole thing without a using a headlamp at this time of year.
