Michigan’s many lakes, acres of forest and coastline offer many FKT options. The famed North Country Trail also runs through the state, offering long distance options. With just 68 posted routes and variations, opportunities for new routes also exist. Thirty nine of the posted routes (57.4%) do not have women’s recorded times as of late (though many do exist as Strava records).
In 2022, women set 6 new FKTs (25% of the total), men snagged 18, and none were set by mixed teams. We would love to see more women claim space on the trails in Michigan 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.
