FKT Routes in California

by | May 12, 2023 | Routes

California offers an incredible variety of FKT routes to explore. From climbing to picnics (a swim/bike/run version) to traditional trail routes and urban adventures, there are hundreds of options across the state. Two hundred of the posted 385 routes (51.9%) and variations do not have women’s posted times as of late (though many do exist as Strava records). We invite you to explore the list and start your California dreaming.

In 2022, women set 61 new FKTs (33.2% of the total), men snagged 112, and 11 were set by mixed teams. We would love to see 50% of the new FKTs claimed by women in the years to come.

If you want to set an FKT on a route that does not have a posted women’s FKT, you should search for known times on Strava and Google.
