How do you know if your adventure is an FKT? A quick overview of the guidelines:
Calculating time – Your time for an FKT is all inclusive. The clock starts at the beginning of the route, and it keeps going until you are completely finished. The clock does not stop for wrong turns, resupplies, sleeping, or anything else that comes up along the way.
Who – Anyone can do an FKT. There are categories for mens, womens, non-binary and mixed gender FKTs.
Timing and verifying – Your FKT must be supported with data. You’ll need to submit a data file or a publicly viewable link to your recorded activity. Your submission should include a short write up that helps confirm you chose the right style (unsupported, self-supported, or supported.) You can also attach a few photos if you like.
Fastest times only – Only the fastest times will be listed. Records are chronological, so as times improve, new ones will be listed but it is not a leaderboard. You must also make a good faith effort to determine if your time is the fastest out there; Strava or other websites may have posted course records that have not been added to the FKT website. If you find a faster time on one of these sites, you should not claim an FKT.
