@Challengers, Sunday evening, I was idly perusing the FLRC CHallenge activity log, as one does, and I started to sense a perturbation in the leaderboard. A pair of runners kept showing up on the same courses, albeit with some odd timestamps. It was a little hard to figure out what was going on, but after a quick conversation this morning, all became clear.
From Karen’s activity log, It looks like she and Bob started with Pseudo Skunk Cabbage early Saturday morning, drove east to Thom B, kept going out to Virgil to complete Forest Frolic, and circled all the way back west and south for Danby Down & Dirty and then Tortoise & Hare, probably as it was just getting dark. Then they came into Ithaca to do the Waterfront Trail and Black Diamond trail in the dark before heading out to the South Hill Rec Way and back in toward Cornell for the Cornell Botanic Gardens, finishing with the East Hill Rec Way. Seems like a smart approach with the waning daylight.
Adding up the official Webscorer times, it took them 17:42:35 to complete all 100K of the Challenge courses—impressive work, you two! Here’s the spreadsheet with all the completions so far:

I’ll be making custom FLRC Challenge signs for Karen and Bob and commemorate their achievements.
Let us know what it was like and how it went—we want stories! And pictures, if you have any.
