Indiana FKT Routes

by | Aug 30, 2023 | Routes

The Indiana trails offer a variety of options for FKTs – from 12 hour challengings to longer trail efforts. Of the posted 20 routes, only nine (45%) do not have women’s times as of yet. Opportunities for variations, like out and backs and doubles, are also plentiful.

In 2022, women set three of the seven FKTs (42.9%), while men set the other four (57.1%).

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.
