Damian Hall runs an FKT on the Pennine Way!

Episode 92 is an interview and discussion with Damian Hall. Damian Hall recently entered the ultra running record books by breaking the Fastest Known Time (FKT) for the 268-mile (431.48kms) Pennine Way. Now ratified as 61hrs 35mins Damian’s time bettered that of American ultra runner John Kelly, who just a week earlier had run it in 64hrs 46mins. Prior to that the record had stood unbeaten for 31 years, belonging to Mike Hartley, who ran 65hrs 20mins in 1989. The Pennine Way is Great Britain’s oldest – and arguably toughest – National Trail, twisting its way from Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders to Edale, Derbyshire, and including a section along Hadrian’s Wall. Much of it is over remote, boggy hills, with a total ascent that exceeds the height of Mount Everest. Popular with hikers, who usually complete it in 16-19 days, Damian did it in just two-and-a-half, battling sleep exhaustion and all manner of tough weather conditions along the way. When he’s not running, Damian is a coach and a journalist and author with more than 20 years' experience of writing for and editing magazines, newspapers, books and websites.
