Attacking the Appalachian Trail

Attacking the Appalachian Trail

with Keilynn Hopkins


This week, Gagz sits down with Keilynn Hopkins to talk about the FKT she set this summer and how she uses trail running as a coping mechanism. Keilynn set an FKT (Fastest Known Time) while completing a self supported out and back run along the Appalachian Trail. She began at the Pennsylvania border, ran through New Jersey to the New York border and then ran back to the Pennsylvania border, completing roughly 144 miles total. You can read her account of the journey on her blog, Nature or Bust.
