Arizona Trail fastest known time attempt

 

About the AZT

The Arizona National Scenic Trail is a complete non-motorized path, stretching 800 diverse miles across Arizona. It links deserts, mountains, canyons, forests, communities and people.

 

With great respect for the current record holder Heather Anderson and all who came before, I would like to announce my intention on attempting to better the current self supported fastest known time (fkt) of 19d:17h:9min on the 800 mile long Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT) on foot. I will start at the monument at Stateline Campground and will be going southbound to the Mexican border.

I will not have anyone following, or otherwise meeting me in prearranged manner to give me support. I plan to do this carrying all of my food, equipment, and water between resupply towns, which I will walk into and out to pick up mailed food boxes or purchasing food. I will not be getting in a vehicle for any reason during this attempt, if I do it means the attempt is off. I will be following the official AZT route. I will carry a Spot tracker for verification as document the attempt by video and photo and will occasionally post on my Instagram (depending on service/battery life) @matthiaskodym.

My main goal is to experience the AZT in exposing myself to the trail as much as I can, If I notice I can not hold the pace my main goal is to finish the journey from Utah to Mexico on the AZT.
