Appalachian Trail World Record Attempt
Last year I helped “Karel Sabbe” break “Scott Jureks” speed record on the Appalachian Trail (AT). I paced and crewed for 15 days, 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 with Karel and his crew.
I will be going for he supported North bound record. This means I will start in starting at Springer Mountain in Georgia and travel north making my way towards Mount Katahdin in Maine. I will travel 2189 miles, crossing 14 states. I will be starting July the 1st.
Appalachian Trail on Strava
I recored all my runs on Strava whilst pacing Karel. 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 it can be followed in full on Strava.
