The trio announced their intentions for the FKT:
As a verification tool we will be carrying a GPS tracking device which can be followed live on upnl.legendstracking.com. This tracker and website is provided by the organization of The Legends Trails in Belgium. Thanks Stef and Tim! All details will be recorded (original and actual track, starting and endingtime, etc).
A few weeks ago Mig (Michiel Panhuysen) completed te course for the first time in 26h23. His ultra report is published on the website mudsweattrails.nl/UPNL_2016(is written in Dutch but you will manage with Google Translate).
We will run this route self-supported which means we will be carrying our own supplies and use a supermarket halfway, restaurants and bars on the route if any.
And the result:
We managed to run the UPNL within 24 hours.
As planned we started at the trainstation in Wezep and according to the arrived 23 hours, 19 minutes and 21 seconds later at trainstation Hilversum Sportpark.
The live tracking site from our Legends Trails friends who supplied us with a tracker gave a time 23 hours, 19 minutes and 43 seconds.
With this we set the FKT for the 154,5 km UPNL track in 23:19:21.
And of course a bunch of pictures in an album on Facebook.
