Jennifer Anderson explains her choice of route this way: "There are various pilgrimage trails on the Camino de Santiago. I completed The One (sometimes known as the Camino Frances) that most people refer to when they say that they hiked the Camino de Santiago. The Camino Frances begins in France at St. Jean Pied de Port and stretches for 800 km (500 miles) to the other side of Spain where it ends at the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela."

She reports: "Although, I was alone most of the time, I did have some assistance. My run was supported/assisted. My total mileage was 507.8 miles. I started on February 26th, 2011 and finished on March 7th, 2011. Total time is 9 days, 5 hours and 29 minutes. I averaged 53 miles a day. For verification: This trail requires stamps as you go through remote towns. I have my stamps. Additionally, I used the DeLorme Spot and so friends and family were able to see exactly where I was every step of the way. I have saved these GPS tracks whick link to Google Maps."

Anderson believes the previous FKT was about 12d12h.

Her journey is chronicled on her blog, and a story in Trail Runner Magazine.
