Cdn Trail Records (FKTs)

There are many amazing Canadian running feats out there and few that have been well documented. The intent of this page is to document as many Canadian trail running records as possible. These records are now also called “fastest known times (FKT)”. To set some guidelines for verification, runners should submit gps/gpx files or a third party confirmation to ratify the FKT.  Documentation gives the runner and the site credibility.  Know of a great Canadian trail record/FKT?
