The FKT better known as Fastest known time is a growing outdoor sports activity worldwide.
More and more people are getting off the beaten track to push themselves to the endurance limit in the middle of nature, across mountains, forests or deserts in all seasons….the tougher and most amazing the better……This is the new athletic frontier, bursting through the known boundaries of the usual organized athletic sports…and the outdoors industry is following with a suit of gear made for all the most daring want-to be endurance records setters. This is not for everyone. We must be careful to know our limits in order to avoid injury and in some cases even death.. Some professionals like Kilian Jornet, a Spanish mountaineer and ultra runner make a living out of breaking records in the wildest locations and he is recognized as the king of the sport.
As more people try to beat or set records in the outdoors, across little known trails or through the wilderness, on their own, we can only depend on their honesty in reporting what they actually accomplished. There is a web site where all self recorded records can be seen at http://fastestknowntime.proboards.com .
If you want to break and post your own record on the FKT web site than arm yourself with a GPS tracker and some witnesses (photos or video would help as well) so you have something to show for your effort.
Good luck on the trail – lets see what you got……send us some pictures!
