Appalachian Trail

Jurek is attempting to achieve the fastest known time on the Appalachian Trail, the famed 2,160-mile path that spans from Georgia to Maine. According to the Fastest Known Time online community, the speed record for the Applachian Trail is 46 days, 11 hours and 20 minutes, set by Jennifer Pharr-Davis (who went from Maine to Georgia, opposite Jurek’s trek).

Jurek started his journey on May 27 in Georgia, and is keeping a detailed log on his Facebook page. He’s averaging about 52 miles a day so far, running for 13 hours each day as he treks through the Great Smoky Mountains.

Gostava muito de um dia correr pelos EUA, como pelo Appalachian Trail, mas vejo-me perante o mesmo problema colocado por outras zonas dos EUA, no Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Montana… É tudo gigantesco! Na maior parte dos casos só podemos correr ou caminhar numa porção pequena de uma paisagem esmagadora que continua horizonte fora, sem nós. Nós temos um avião para apanhar.
