What Exactly Is This Project, Anyways?

Women Who FKT is dedicated to encouraging anyone who identifies as a woman to explore the world of Fastest Known Times (FKTs.) We celebrate women tackling ambitious goals. We encourage collaboration and cooperation to help us all rise and claim our space in adventure. We offer resources for new FKT setters, a growing community of like minded adventurers, and celebration of women’s achievements.

We are a grassroots project, independent of the FKT website. We strive to create an inclusive community, and we hope that you join us.
