Description

The Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway Trail (MSGT) is a 48 mile long hiking trail that links Grand Monadnock with Mount Sunapee in southwestern New Hampshire. It winds along the Monadnock Highlands that divide the Connecticut and Merrimack River drainages. It is maintained by the Monadnock-Sunappe Greenway Trail Club.

Josh Ferenc & Greg Hammett ran the trail from north to south in 9h30m4s on May 10, 2008. Their trip is reported in the August issue of Trail Runner Magazine.

On May 2, 2002, Sue Johnston and Hans Put ran the trail in 13h5m. Though "not a super stellar time" (Johnston's words), this appears to be the women's FKT.

Here's a write-up on a 1-day run of the MSGT: http://selfinflictious.blogspot.com/2016/06/sunapee-monadnock-greenway-fire-and.html

Stoked to attempt to slog through this tomorrow (10/16/18). Tracker link will be here

Shouldn't Eli Burakian have the FKT for solo unsupported? I know the "unsupported" rules changed recently, but the other ones are teams...right?

Is there any history of a winter FKT, attempting it tomorrow and was curious.
