At 5:40 a.m. on July 16, 2016 Travis Liles, Scott Loughney, and I (Yassine Diboun) set out for the Supported FKT of the Oregon PCT (South to North). The fastest supported time for the Oregon section that I could find was by Joe McConaughy (who did the entire PCT supported). His Oregon split was 8 days and 19 hours. I contacted him and let him know what we were attempting.

We did this Oregon PCT Project for charity and you can learn more about it at: www.OregonPCTproject.com and search #orPCTrun on instagram and facebook. There is a 30-minute movie being made about our attempt and will be available soon at www.StevenMortinson.com . That being said, we have many witnesses to our adventure and can verify our time.

We finished at the border of Washington in 8 days 12 hours and 5 minutes, and as far as we know, we hold the FKT for the state of Oregon (Supported).
