Michael Wardian has finished his 10-day 631-mile adventuring smashing the Fastest Known Time on the Israel National Trail by several days.
Ultra superstar Michael Wardian set a new Fastest Known Time (FKT) for the Israel National Trail, covering the 631-mile journey (south to north) in 10 days, 16 hours and 36 minutes (unofficially).
Event organizer Ian Corless wrote, “it’s difficult to put into words a 10-day journey of 631-miles. Especially when someone has run the whole distance. I have to say, mine was one of relief.
“Mike had done it. He had achieved his target of running the INT in 10-days and to be part of the journey is beyond rewarding. I witnessed intense highs and lows. So, to finally watch Mike touch ‘home’ and finally be able to stop, I had relief and immense satisfaction of a job well done.
“I truly believe Mike, and maybe us all will need more than a few hours to comprehend the new record, for now though, Michael Wardian is the new record holder of the FKT for the Israel National Trail.“
Others have covered this many miles in 10 days but no one has covered this many miles in this amount of time on such a challenging course.
Michael’s goal was to complete this journey in 10 days and he did it smashing the FKT by several days. This may be a record that will never be broken.
