    More power to her. Hope she keeps good records so there is no controversy.

    I think is a dude but not sure, didn't read that closely. I stopped following the other contender from this years batch of FKT attempts so wanted to share this with anyone who'd want to know. Seems like a good watch!

    He's an early-20's dude. Looking at his competitive results, he doesn't have what it takes. Matt Lipsey, has smoked him so very badly in every competition they have entered together that it isn't a long-shot, but a non-starter. Just look at the time difference in the Rock'n the Knob....Lipsey did the 20 miles in 2:46:01 and Koltin got it done more than an hour later at 4:04:33. I couldn't find any ultra-marathons or anything over 26 miles for Koltin. I wish him luck, but I don't see him as even close to being the elite athlete it takes to get it done in FKT fashion...Lipsey has what it takes to be an elite ultra-marathon trail runner...Koltin...not so much...at least not now...no comparison....

    Yes, he's a guy. Also raising money for hunger . . . https://www.crowdrise.com/koltinhammer

    Quite a few marathons and 1/2's and 10K's listed on the one page, but no LD speed hiking resume. Certainly being a conditioned runner is helpful, but LD hikes are quite different animals than one day trail runs.

    Just as interesting is the fund raise side of his hike, wondering if that's his main motove

    According to Instragram, THE HAMMER has done 58.3 miles in two days. Annish does that before breakfast ;-)

    22.3 miles behind Annish's theoretical 2 day total. I'd say this is just a fast thru, if that. That trail will humble you.

    Even a mere mortal like me has done this in a day. I also averaged higher than this for over 2000 miles. But, in no way would I have half a shot of beating the current record.

    Here's the link to his facebook site with updates. https://www.facebook.com/Koltins-AT-...89632484810473

    He's going NOBO
    Day 1 = 31.4 mi
    Day 2 = 26.9 mi

    It's early yet but he's a bit off the pace.

    Day 4: 15.3m - Bly Gap to Carter Gap. Looks like NC gave him a warm welcome!
