I'd like to announce that I will be attempting the overall supported FKT on the Superior Hiking Trail, starting at the northern terminus (270 Overlook) to the southern terminus at the Minnesota/Wisconsin border starting on May 29th, 2020.  I'm planning for 96 hours.

First of all, we would like to thank you so much for all the work you are doing for the global community of runners. Especially now with all the additional workload due to exploding FKTs. You give us something to hold on to and to keep us motivated in these difficult times!

We would also like to announce, that we will attempt to set an initial FKT on the Roswitha-Weg in Germany this weekend. "We" is Holger Nolte and myself (Morten Surhoff). We will try to complete the route unsupported as a team. We will comply to all local rules and regulation regarding the current pandemic. Our attempt will be northbound, starting on Sat., May 30th 8:00 a.m. German time (UTC+2) and we will broadcast our progress via this link: https://raceday.me/v/e74bae

Hopefully, we will be able to send the evidence documents of a successful attempt on Monday! ;)

Best regards and thanks again,
Holger and Morten
