T he next FKT Segment Challenge is here, and just like the first time around, once again we’re asking you to get out there, run your fastest time along this new route, and upload it to Strava using #fktsegmentchallenge in the description. You can run as many times as you like while keeping up to date with the leaderboard to see where you stack up. It’s totally free, get involved.

For this next addition we’ve got a special twist: apart from the normal daytime leaderboard, there will be a separate “nighttime leaderboard” for all efforts starting from 19:30 pm and finishing 05:40 am – we want to see how fast you can run trail in the dark, using your headlight. Two leaderboards, four winners. Get involved.
