By 2:35 p.m., the duo returned, having biked 38 miles to the Longs Peak trailhead, run 5 miles to the base of the Diamond, climbed the 1,700-foot Casual Route, run 9 miles down, and biked 38 miles back to Boulder. With a time of 9 hours, 6 minutes, Krupicka and Griebel officially had the fastest known time on the Longs Peak Triathlon, an unofficial “race” in Colorado climbing.”
