Josh Perry Just Set a Stunning New FKT on the PCT

Postby wayno » Thu 11 Aug, 2022 5:58 am

An enduring speed record on the Pacific Crest Trail has fallen. On Sunday, August 7, at 8:56 P.M., Josh Perry—a 27-year-old British hiker with no fixed address—reached the Canadian border, finishing the 2,600-mile trail just 55 days, 16 hours, and 54 minutes after he departed the trail’s starting point near the U.S. border with Mexico.

That's an average of 75km/day every day for 56 days! I'd be toast after 1 day of half that distance and have to have a nero the following day to recover.
