TLDR: be prepared to spend 3 to 5hrs. on the course.

It's worth taking a look at the times from the last ultralong at Fishtrap before Sunday's goat, as they have similar overall stats (sans skip):

2022 Goat: 28 controls / 18.6km / 475m
2019: 28 controls / 18.1km / 430m

It was quite hot that year, hot enough to slow people down, so if you’re fast maybe 2hrs is doable?

I'm excited for it :)

Any information about when the splits/results for this event will come up? Routegadget?

I do know that yesterday, they had to check manually given the skips, and I assume some type of decision will be made regarding the controls with the wrong numbers (if people will be penalized or not for not punching the incorrect control at the correct place).

There is no rush, I’m sure people are just curious.

There were reportedly some complications that occurred after the event, during control pickup, that took priority for the meet crew (medical issues), so that may cause very understandable delays.

Splits for all but the Kid course here.

Note: Greyed out splits represent skips. For example, Jacob Hook has greyed out splits for 5-6 and 6-7. That represents how I skipped 6, but it was manually entered in with an equitable split time per distance for both controls.

As a consequence of that, don't pay too much attention to controls that are flagged as errors in red, because the skips complicate the calculation, e.g. everybody who went to #6 on the Ibex appears to have an error on #7, because those who skipped #6 got to #7 so much faster.
