Congrats Willie!  That was truly amazing!  I had plans to go after this one self supported next November but after the massive miles you put up I think I will look elsewhere!  

Starting Thursday, April 30th, 2020 I will be attempting to set a new supported FKT for the Pinhoti. I will begin at Flagg and proceed to the Northern Terminus at the BMT. My wife, Mallory Yawn, and my in-laws, Todd and Jamie Henderson will be providing support during my effort.

Live tracking will be provided at the link provided below. I will also use my watch to record a .gpx track. Upon successful completion, I will provide the gpx track for verification.

Hi there. I will be attempting to set a new supported FKT on the Pinhoti starting Sunday, October 18. I will be traveling northbound. Live tracking can be found here https://share.garmin.com/X9DEC. I will also wear my Coros watch to record the trip, and will provide the file if I am successful, along with a full race report, photos, etc. 

I will be attempting a self-supported FKT starting Friday, Oct 23 2020. I will begin at Flagg Mountain and head north from there. I will have a gps watch going and a garmin mini inreach but am choosing for personal safety to keep the garmin track private for friends and family until completion. I will share photos, both gpx inreach and gps watch tracks, and a race report upon completion. 

I will be making a supported attempt in the southbound direction starting on October 30 at 8:00am EDT. Live tracking will be available at https://share.garmin.com/houghcanty

I began this morning at the northern terminus at 9:31am.

Tomorrow (11/5/2021) at 11 am, I'll begin my Supported FKT attempt heading Southbound. My Live Tracking can be found here: https://live.enabledtracking.com/pinhoti2021/ .

Huge thanks to this incredible community for the support and all the previous record holders for paving the way, I'm looking forward to having a special experience out there!

I will be attempting a supported nobo FKT starting Sunday, Nov 21 2021. I will begin at the northern terminus and head south from there. I will have a gps watch going and a garmin mini inreach but am choosing for personal safety to keep the garmin track private for friends and family until completion. I will share photos, both gpx inreach and gps watch tracks, and a race report upon completion.
