This one has been a long time coming. An FKT in your backyard is hard to pass up. I have run on this course a lot in the past year to learn its essence and subtleties. Late October is likely not the fastest conditions, the heavy leaf cover on the ground and a few slippery mud pits made for an exciting Friday afternoon spur of the moment FKT attempt especially while wearing the Atreyu Artist carbon road shoes. I maybe left one minute or so on the table due to the non-optimal conditions. I would not be surprised if someone went sub 60 mins on this route in the near future. Happy to be a part of the hard efforts for now. Can't wait till they extend this trail even further. Get out there and enjoy!
