Did not even think till after i read the response my question that i kinda took the thread off topic.

Sorry!!

Why yes, yes you could.  ;)

A friend and I ran it in a single push last August. Details are here if you're interested: http://adamiata.blogspot.com/2011/08/100-mile-wilderness-run-maine.html

Adam you're a real sicko!

I was actually going to post your 100 mile trip report in here when I got around to finding it. You and your mutt passed me last October early in the morning near the summit of Liberty. I was training for a pemi loop and was pretty pissed off to get passed so easily until I figured out it was you.

edit: might have been early November.

adamiata:
Did you ever get your Pemi Loop done?

It was October and doggie was doing his first Pemi Loop - handled it like a champ.

To more completely answer your question, the Northern 50 miles is quite runnable, mostly good footing and not a huge amount of gain. The section over Whitecap is very much like typical 4,000 footer in the whites, rough footing and lots of gain. The Barren-Chairback range is a total bitch, lots of up and down with really gnarly footing. The Southern 15 miles is rolling and ledgy, mostly runnable if you were fresh.
