apalachian trail

Setting a record on the trail means huffing through an ultra marathon once a day, every day, for about six weeks. The total elevation gain and loss is nearly 515,000 feet, and much of it is hardscrabble rock barely identifiable as a trail. Jennifer Pharr Davis set the trail’s current record in 2011 by hiking every step with only minimal assistance. Originally, Jurek predicted he’d best her record by four days. By late June, it became clear that he won’t make that. Some in his camp are wondering about the record altogether. (a ultramaratona do momento)
