28. Jason Hardrath on Reshaping the Racing World (and terrain) with FKTs

FKT - shorthand for “Fastest Known Time” is essentially, a speed record on any given route. Anyone, at any time, on any day, can try to break a record and set a new FKT. After a serious car accident took him off the roads, today's guest shifted from marathons and ironmans and took his training to the trails and mountains where he found a passion for what I'll call "creative athletic pursuits". If you visit the official FKT website, you'll see the name Jason Hardrath at the top of the leaderboard with a whopping 94 FKT efforts.

Part Cartographer, Mountaineer, Race Director, Athlete, and a dozen other skills, Jason just might be the Dave McGillivray of FKTs a prolific route builder in his own rite - you'll love hearing how Jason strings together routes and how he feels when others find them, complete them, and occasionally set their own FKT on his creations.
