Notes

2017 Transvulcania champion Tim Freriks set a new R2R (north to south) FKT of 2h39m38s on October 1, 2017, as reported on Walmsley's Twitter feed and Freriks' Instagram. Trail Runner Magazine interviewed Freriks after the run.

"Jim Walmsley and Jared Hazen [met] me at Black Bridge to provide moral support (yelling and cheering). They took [Bright Angel] down to meet me, and never ran with me or exchanged any gear, water or nutrition."
