Karl Meltzer Breaks Appalachian Trail Record

Elite ultrarunner Karl Meltzer just broke the Appalachian Trail thru-hike speed record set last year by Scott Jurek!

Meltzer finished this tough trek of 2,190 miles in 45 days, 22 hours, 38 minutes!!! Jurek’s now ‘old’ record was 46 days, 8 hours, 7 minutes.

Congrats to Karl and his team on the new record.
