We report guiding of sub-100-fs pulses at intensities up to over a distance of 1 cm in a preformed plasma channel. The width of the guided pulse was shortened, which we attribute to ionization-induced refraction at the channel entrance. A pulse energy throughput of 30% in the lowest-order was measured.
