Last year's SRT Run didn't produce an unsupported FKT because we put out water (this was due to drought watch conditions). This year, zero aid was provided, and we have a new course record and a new unsupported FKT for the 70-mile Shawangunk Ridge Trail. Timothy Ela of Clifton Park, NY completed the trail in 19:17.

Here is his race report which contains a link to Strava: thelongbrownpath.com/2017/09/22/tim-elas-2017-srt-race-report/

The SRT Run is a minimalist format event, so no aid stations (although we do have check points for safety), and no supplemental course markings. It uses the "new" SRT route which goes through the northern Mohonk Preserve instead of on roads and rail trails.
