I will be attempting a self supported FKT of the Down East Sunrise Trail.  I plan to start at approximately 8pm on Monday 7/4/2022 from the SW terminus at mile post 0.0 in Ellsworth and finish at the NE terminus at Ayers Junction.

It was not in the cards for me this time around. I had to bring it to an end after 50 miles.  I will try again in the future.  - Greg Legier
