Keith Knipling's Elevation Chart
Massanutten Mountain Trails 100
May 8-9, 2004
During the 2004 MMT, Keith Knipling wore a heart rate monitor that records elevation. A small version of the elevation chart using that data is above. Click on the chart or here for a larger version.
Note: This chart shows feet on the Y axis and time, not distance, on the X axis. So the flat points could be Keith resting at an aid station rather than flat terrain. Actually, Keith ran a pretty consistent pace, but there is some distortion based on this fact. Keith has said that he might plot his splits on this and help adjust for times he wasn't moving.
To answer your question, he got just under 18,000 feet of total ascent.
