Ultrarunner Darcy Piceu has set a new “fastest known time” on the iconic Cordillera Huayhuash Circuit in Peru for both men and women. She completed the 85-mile (136 km) route, which has an average altitude of around 14,000 ft (4267 meters), in just 29 hours and 15 minutes. This achieves her goal of finishing the entire trail in less than 30 hours.
The Huayuash Circuit exceeded my hopes in every way. It was a breathtakingly beautiful, intimidating, and incredibly challenging 85+ mile “run” that I completed in 29hrs and 15 minutes. To call it an “FKT” just doesn’t feel right, but I hit my goal of under 30 hours. To spend 30 hours at an average elevation of 14,200 ft was quite a feat for me. I could not have done it without the support of @highlinerunningadventures and @trailrunningperu It’s always the people that make these experiences memorable. And photos just don’t do these mountains justice. ❤️? ?cred: @highlinerunningadventures #livelife #sufferbetter #huayuashfkt #womenwhofly #gofarfeelgood
