Anton Krupicka failed to beat Jones' time on April 20, 2013, 6h59m24s, just 32s faster than Mackey's 2007 time. Then, on 5/11/2013, Rob Krar brought the FKT all the way down to 6h21m47s.
Pretty special day at the Canyon, still wrapping my head around it!
Quick details (irunfar.com will be hosting run report in near future):
- Near perfect conditions and very minor issues
- Had company (Brian Tinder) from south rim to river on way out and from Skeleton Point back up to south rim on way back
- OFFICIAL TIME 6:21:47
- See video's for start, North Kaibab Trailhead and finish
NORTH KAIBAB TRAILHEAD (Warning--not family friendly. This was the first time I checked my watch during the run and was a little surprised at what I saw)
Thanks everyone for your support and encouragement!
