In order to qualify for the RAAM, I will have to finish with 15% of the first finisher in my category. I am not sure what the finisher did in 2010, but in 2009 the first place finisher was Kenneth Philbrick with a time of 32h:46m. If I use this time as a basis, I would have to complete the race with maximum time of 37h:40m. That is an average speed of about 14 mph. Definitely doable if I can get my climbing speed up.
