Between August 28th, 2015 and September 4th, 2015, with the help of an amazing crew, I ran the Canal Pursuit for Mental Health, a total of 680 km along the Trent Severn Canal and then the Rideau Canal. I stopped and had a witness at every one of the locks through which a boat would pass to go end-to-end on both canals. I don't believe this has been done before. So here are the two FKTs:

I ran from lock 45 to lock 1 on the Trent Severn Canal in 4 days, 16 hours, 29 minutes. A total distance of 423 km.

I ran from lock 49 to lock 1 on the Rideau Canal in 2 days, 19 hours, 4 minutes. A total distance of 250.8 km.
