On March 20th, I set out to break the FKT for the Central Park Loop Challenge, fully supported.
I started running at 06:05am from Tavern on the Green, where I set up my crew and aid station. I proceeded to run 16 loops on the standard route, in a counterclockwise direction. Various friends joined me for some loops as pacers. I received aid after the completion of each loop.
Weather was perfect, highs in the upper 50’s, lows in the mid-30’s. Sun was out, and the people watching was fantastic.
I completed Loop 16 at 12:12am on March 21st, with a total mileage of 98.49 miles in 18 hrs 7 mins and 43 seconds.
