The Appalachian Trail
2,200 miles, 14 States, 16 x Mount Everests
My history on the trail
Last year (2018) I paced “Karel Sabbe” helping him break “Scott Jureks” speed record on the Appalachian Trail (AT). Running up to 37 miles per day carrying Karel’s food and drinks. I covered in total 425 miles on the AT for the 15 days I was on the trail. Whilst out there sweating in the heat of the day I became inspired to one day go for my own attempt. After some planning I am happy to announce I will be going for my own attempt this year.
I’m heading North bound (NOBO)
This year (2019) I will be attempting to break the supported north bound AT record. This means I will start at Springer Mountain in Georgia and finish at Mount Katahdin in Maine. I will travel 2189 miles, crossing 14 states. My attempt will begin on July the 1st. I am very excited to have this adventure ahead of me, I have the support of my family and friends. I will also have some runners come out to pace me during my attempt. It will be an epic adventure and will hold many challenges.
Whilst pacing my friend Karel Sabbe I recored all my runs on Strava. Below are 4 days taken from the 15 days I paced, if you would like to see more of my runs on Strava click on one of the runs below. I will also be uploading every run at the end of each day during my record attempt so you can follow my progress in full.
