Washington FKTs

by | Apr 21, 2023 | Routes

Washington is a wonderland of rugged mountain peaks, dark green forests and high desert terrain. Three national parks and millions of acress of forest offer a seemingless endless array of FKT routes.  One hundred six of the posted 230 routes (46.1%) and variations do not have women’s posted times as of late (though many do exist as Strava records). 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, women set 66 new FKTs (46.8% of the total), men snagged 65, and ten were set by mixed teams, which meant that the women flipped the statistics in this state! We hope to keep the momentum and watch more women claim FKTS on these amazing trails.
