O n the 13th August 2018, we kicked off the first-ever FKT Segment Challenge. In short, think of this is a “monthly (trail) parkrun” occurring along a regular route, that’s accessible and safe for all to participate in. Learn more about it in detail here. 

After 5 action-packed weeks of seeing trail-runners set their best times around the 5.3km / 175m loop on Lions Head, we’re happy to announce that it was a great success, and a bunch of fun to put on.

Watch our latest interview with the August winners here.

W ith 106 official runner’s logging their best times using the Strava platform, we’d like to give a shout out to each and every one of you for taking part and joining in on the fun. Below are all the official results.
