Nolan's Attempt - 8/27/15 9:05pm Start

Post by Cthulhu 2008 » Fri Aug 28, 2015 9:41 am

Hey All,

My pal Dave Ruttum started his Nolan's attempt last night at 9:05 pm jogging alone with his headlamp from the Fish Hatchery. It looks like he has La Plata and is cruising down to Winfield. He completed the line S-N last year in 63 hours as a scouting effort. He has since learned a lot more about the route and is running strong.

I have great confidence that he'll come in under 60 hours TH-TH and in my opinion he has a shot at the FKT. Stop working in your cubicle and follow along...

Go Dave! \:D/

Funny. :) Glad there's a clearly stated goal, to go the distance, and not stop short at the "women's finish" point. GO DAVE!!!

When Cthulhu demands something, we had better listen and stop working in our cubicles! This is going to be exciting, and I am glad the runner posted that he is doing TH-TH to set everyone's expectations to match his! I am rooting for a FKT.

FKT info from Peter's website:
  • John Robinson (Massive- 52:42, Fish TH- 54:57) ***Men's northbound FKT
  • Brandon Stapanowich & Gavin McKenzie (Shavano- 54:47, Blank TH- 56:19) ***Men's southbound FKT
So, If I know how to do math...Sub 60 is 9:05 AM Sunday, overall FKT is 4:02 AM Sunday, Southbound FKT is 5:24 AM Sunday. All times TH to TH.

As a youngster, I was taught that it's better if the woman finishes first. As Loudon Wainwright once wrote:

That is one strong dude. Apparently he finished San Juan Solstice in 9:35 this year. Speed certainly isn't going to be an issue.

Good luck Dave!

Looks like he topped out on Huron around 1:30 and is headed down the east side to Missouri. Four down, ten to go.
