I'm pleased to report that we have a new unsupported FKT for the Shawangunk Ridge Trail (SRT).  Jason Berry was the first place finisher at this year's SRT Run/Hike (, a minimalist format event that is totally unsupported (no aid stations or supplemental course markings) and was created specifically to provide an unsupported FKT experience on what we believe is one of the most beautiful and rugged trails in the northeast.  Jason completed the entire SRT in 22:02, improving upon my previous record by over 2 hours.  Nice job Jason!

Of note, this is the "new" SRT that includes a section through the northern Mohonk Preserve that avoids paved roads.  We expect the Mohonk Preserve and the NY-NJ Trail Conference to move the official SRT onto this route.  For reference, here is a link to the entire route
