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)” – because I guess these aren’t sanctioned events and there’s little to actually verify the person accomplished the feat. Nonetheless, running is an honest sport and thus we have honest records or FKTs. Know of a great Canadian trail record (FKT)? Send an email to
