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.

Beginning Wednesday 15th May 2024, Imo Boddy will be attempting to set a new FKT for the National Three Peaks Challenge, following the original sea-level to seal-level route established by Ann Sayer in 1979. I (Chris Taylor, TaylorMade Coaching & Events) have organised the attempt and will be there throughout the challenge.

Imo will be setting off at 07:00 on the 15th. If anyone would like to track, you can follow Imo's progress here: https://live.adventuretracking.be/3PEAKS

Tracking is provided using satellite tech, so we should have signal at all times (the tracking is set to share location fixes every 2 minutes). Imo will be recording GPS evidence of her attempt using two Garmin watches.

Kristian Morgan here, trail name "Captain Morgan", however 2021 AT thru hikers know me as "Down Over" as I hiked with them for about 440 miles from Hanover, New Hampshire to Mount Katahdin in Maine, fun times. 

2023 - I broke Karl Meltzer's 7 year old supported SoBo record. 

2022 - I set the 2nd fastest supported NoBo time. 

2018 - I ran as mule (ran with and carried supplies) for the current AT record holder Karel Sabbe, a most excellent adventure spanning 15 days. 

On May 25th at 4am my crew (Gun Section and Iceman) and I will begin an FKT attempt for the Appalachian trail, we will go Nobo. You are welcome to come and offer help to my crew or run with me on a section. You will be able to live track this journey and follow on social media, please see below.
