The Appalachian Assault is a speed attempt on the Appalachian Trail. Karl is an endurance athlete and trail runner who hopes to cover the entire 2,174 miles of the AT in just 47 days, averaging over 46 miles per day. You’ll be able to track his progress on the front page of the website, as he’ll be carrying a SPOT Messenger, which I had first hand experience with at Primal Quest, and should allow for very accurate updates on exactly where Karl is located at all times.
This should be a great event to follow and I wish Karl the best of luck. Hopefully he’ll be safe and healthy and in a position to really make a run at this new speed record.
