Tomorrow morning at roughly 7:39am pt I will be starting my Calendar Year Triple Crown FKT attempt from the Southern Terminus of the PCT. I will be using my inreach mini to post location updates every four hours while on this hike, and my tracking link is https://share.garmin.com/billymeredithcytc
FKT Attempts We're Tracking
FKT attempts we're tracking right now. (Tap each to expand.)
- You do not need to inform us in advance (except for Premier Routes).
- We do suggest you post your intentions in a comment on the route page.
- Live tracking is optional, and we’ll only add it to this “Tracking Now” area for efforts expected to be longer than 24 hours (you can also post your tracker info in comments on the route).
- Our 10 Premier Routes (see Guidelines) require you to announce your attempt in advance, and live tracking is strongly recommended.

Hi this is Kristian Morgan, trail name “Captain” or “Down Over” as the thru hikers know me from 2021. During 2018 I paced/mueled and crewed Karel Sabbe for 15 days. He went on to set a supported NoBo FKT on the Appalachian trail. The experience inspired me a great deal. I pursued my own attempts in 2019, 2021 and 2022, Currently I hold the second fastest time in the world, 44d, 4h 54m, set in 2022. I was privileged to be helped by so many generous people including my crew “Gun Section” (Sharon Mullan), “IceMan” (David Martin) and “FishBoy” (Stephan Grierson). This year, 2023 we will be setting out for our 4th attempt. I will have the same crew. We will go Sobo as so if we fall off record pace for the overall FKT (41d 7h 39m) we will aim to set the SoBo record held by Karl “SpeedGoat” Meltzer 45d 22h 38m. I will carry a live tracker (Garmin Inreach Mini 2). Our start date will be August 2 2023
