    Total distance is there and back. If the want you to fly a certain distance between two points they will usually specify it with “at least one segment at least Xnm.” The 100nm requirement is for night dual and itonly specfies TOTAL distance. (Keep in mind that in the US for Private, Instrument, Commercial, and ATP only flights with one airport more than 50nm away count for X/C)

    Because of the way you’ve worded it, I assume you’re specifically asking about section (a).(2).(i) regarding the night training requirements? In that case, the distance is there and back, so any destination more than 50nm away will suffice so long as both legs are at night.
