On Saturday, Nov. 8, I ran the entire Hellgate 100K course.  It took me 14 hours and 44 minutes.   As a result of this, I am going to extend the time limit to 18 hours with two specific cut-offs, Headforemost Mtn. and Bearwallow Gap aid stations with cut-offs at 7 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. respectively.   You can see my time listed below.  I was running the course and not racing it.    I could have run faster and I know others will.
