The 10 year old Grand Traverse record was finally smashed on December 20 with a time of 3 days 9 hours and 53 minutes!
Attempts on the record intensified this year with several teams making a go of it. Finally, on 17 December, Stijn Laenen and Andrew Hagen set out from Sentinel Car Park at 9:00am, to finish in record time on the 20th. Some 24 hours were cut off the previous record of 4 days 9 hours 39 minutes, set by Lawrie and Gaven Raubenheimer in 1999.
