It can be done.
OK, so someone broke the rules & sneaked onto the Inca Trail without permit, and they ran it in one day. How is that a good thing? The permits, regulations & limits are there for a reason - to preserve the trail for all to enjoy.
There are some registered trek agencies who will assist with running the Inca Trail, if someone wants to do that. In fact, there is an annual Inca Trail race - usually if not always won by local Peruvians.
