Fastest Known Times
From humble grassroots beginnings in the 1990s, the activity (and obsession) of FKT has risen to become trail running’s hottest pursuit. “Origins of FKT” gives a glimpse into the scene, which has roots on the John Muir Trail in California and, now, has risen to the heights of Mount Everest. Archival footage from around the world and in-person interviews with FKT luminaries are included in this short documentary, filmed in Boulder, Colorado.
