While you won’t find huge amounts of elevation change in Illinois, you will find a variety of FKT routes with plenty of opportunity for women to lay down some Fastest Known Times. Of the 54 posted routes and variations, 38 (70.4%) did not have a recorded women’s FKT.
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.
In 2022, 19 people set FKTs – 3 by women (15.8%) and 16 by men (84.2%). We hope to see more women claim FKTs soon!
