GPS Track


Dana Dobbins and I, Emilia Cameron just set the new male and female self-supported FKTs, respectively. We ran the route today–Saturday, April 4, 2020. I will submit my GPX track and Strava route, as well as pictures. I believe Dana will do the same.

Heading out for the supported FKT today starting around 11am with Amanda Basham on bike for the second half! Looks like a perfect day!

I set the FKT for unsupported category yesterday, 8:43, thanks to Stephanie for setting the route and thanks to the website for managing these FKT.  I'll submit a short recap and my GPX file.

Cheer, Brad

Camping tonight at Tom's Campground in Dodgeville, WI, planning to attempt a supported FKT tomorrow on Military Ridge!

Tomorrow I will be attempting an unsupported FKT on Military Ridge looks like it is going to be a hot one!
