I will be attempting unsupported FKT of Collegiate Peaks loop. I should be starting this Sunday June 24th, probably at 0600. I will have Inreach transmitting except when I stop to sleep. I will use no support, companionship, trail magic, etc.
I began the unsupported FKT for Collegiate Peaks at 0401 Sunday, June 24th. I ran CCW. I am double checking my times. I either finished at 3 days even or 3 days 1 min. I have supporting Garmin connect, training peaks and Garmin Inreach. I forgot to turn on tracking on my Inreach the last morning and have approx 3 hours/12 miles missing. My Fenix 3/training peaks has continuous data to show that I didn't find other means to teleport. I was on track to finish closer to 2d21 hours but went off the rails. The many miles of scree paths the last day wrecked havoc on my feet. Amazing loop.
I’ll be starting an attempt for the women’s FKT of the Collegiate Loop Monday, July 29. I will track the attempt using InReach while moving: https://us0-share.inreach.garmin.com/LauraParsonFKT
I start Monday, July 29 at 5:50 AM, finished Thursday, August 1 at 10:22 pm. Total elapsed time 3 days, 16 hours, 32 minutes.
Late snowpack and avalanche damage made the west loop particularly difficult this year.
