This route on the old FKT site
Cassie Scallon attempted the FKT on 3/09/2019, but came up a bit short:
"I just wanted to follow up on the unsupported FKT attempt I had on the Joshua Tree Traverse last weekend. I missed Sarah Keys' time and ended up coming in 5:36:12, which looks like it may be the 2nd fastest time reported to your site. I uploaded my run on Strava here ."
Today, Apr 12, 2019, I will attempt another unsupported Joshua Tree double traverse (a.k.a out-and-back or yo-yo) with the goal to beat Jason Hardrath's impressive time from Dec 2018. More info at http://www.christofteuscher.com/aagaa/announcement-another-joshua-tree-double-traverse-attempt.
I plan to start around 5pm.
I'm not sure how to make edits as I did this on the old website but this is the link to the current overall FKT: https://www.strava.com/activities/890228326
Not a FKT but did this route in 9:00:53 this past Saturday. Prettier than I expected and tougher (sand, wind) than I expected too! All in, enjoyed the day tremendously!
Heading out tomorrow morning around sunrise to go after the supported Joshua Tree Traverse FKT. Heading west to east. Dylan just set an awesome time so assuming it will be pretty hard. Got intel from Claire and YiOu.
Headed out at 4:00am tomorrow 12/18/2021 for an out and back supported effort in partnership with LA Saves Track! I had a great convo with Jake Jackson about his experience on the Traverse and I’m excited for a strong desert adventure.
