The Arizona Trail is known as one of the gnarliest, most volatile, and grueling long trails in the United States. So, getting an FKT (Fastest Known Time) on the AZT is a tall, difficult order.

But very recently, Katie Brown absolutely smashed the self-supported female FKT on the AZT in an astonishing 17 days, 19 hours, and 52 minutes! And today, she is our guest on the show.

Katie Brown is an ultrarunner, accomplished thru-hiker, and endurance athlete who has completed tons of the world’s most epic trails, such as the Appalachian Trail and the Continental Divide Trail. And most recently, she completed the Arizona Trail, grabbing the self-supported female FKT.

In this episode, Katie breaks down her entire FKT journey on the Arizona Trail, how she was able to bounce back quickly from the low points, and what her biggest takeaways were from the entire experience.
