280 miles (451 km) in 24 hrs on a 600K. This was a figure-eight route so at the 280 mile point, I took a shower, a two-hr. nap at the hotel, had breakfast and spent a bunch of time marshalling a group together (horrible weather was tempting a lot of people to quit....many did) and then finished the remaining 100 miles.
...FWIW, the first 280 miles was pretty flat, the last 100 did have a bunch of hills. Lots of rain, lightning and wind on day two, too.
