The Most Extreme Running Challenge: the FKT

FKT is short for "Fastest Known Time'' and refers to the fastest time that a specific route or course has been completed. There isn't a formal race or event, and no race medals or crowns given out for setting a new FKT—just the sweet sense of accomplishment. With few races being held this year, we've seen a boom in FKT attempts as runners look for ways to test their limits and give training a purpose. Join the greatest online running community today.
