T he FKTseries is a trail running discovery resource that exists to inspire runners like you to get out there and run their fastest times. This is a community platform that provides essential information, stages events, tells the latest stories, and creates content around the growing sport of trail running in South Africa.

The project was born from a desire to create a home-base for celebrating, pushing and documenting the efforts of athletes of all abilities, with a particular focus on fastest known times (FKT’s).

We’re currently working on many exciting projects which we hope will be of value to you; they include a Trail Library where we’re documenting all the best trail runs in Cape Town (extending outwardly as we grow) in a cohesive and easy to use manner for runners new to an area, or to the sport. We’re staging events such as the Micro Race Series “a year long, multi-race, point-based championship” all the way to regular Friday Groupruns “FKT Friday’s”. We’ll also be talking all things FKT related with pacemakers and trendsetters in South Africa via our Fastest Known News section to get the latest-dirt on the scene.

Thanks to the support and encouragement of readers like yourself, the FKTseries community is growing, and that’s enabling us to document more trails, produce better content and host more events, just for you. Become a fan of the FKTseries by following us on Instagram, liking our Facebook page, Subscribing and joining the Strava club. Thank you!
