Vermont FKT Routes

by | Sep 15, 2023 | Routes

Vermont’s trails have a bustling FKT scene, and the percentage of women’s FKTs shows it. Of the 48 posted routes and variations, just 22 don’t have posted women’s times yet (45.8%). Plenty of opportunity still remains for women to go out and snag an FKT.

In 2022, the women crushed the men for claiming FKTs, setting 18 of the 25 total (72%). One was posted by a mixed team (4%) and six by men (24%).

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. 

The Long Trail Running Club also maintains a list of FKTs.
