Jeff had big plans for 2020. In the autumn of 2019, he signed a pro-contract with Salomon and was planning to race hard in a number of ultra-marathons this year. COVID-19 had different plans. With races cancelled, or at best postponed until 2021, Jeff needed to come up with a new plan. Cue, an FKT attempt on the legendary Backbone Trail in California.

“FKT” stands for Fastest Known Time, and the concept of covering a distance faster than anybody else on record has exploded this year. In this episode, Jeff shares his story, how he adapted and pivoted this year to ensure that he would still achieve his goals and what he hopes to achieve in the future.
