The Trail Running Film Festival - Back on Tour for 2023.
Project cofounder Marta Fisher crunched the numbers so far:
As of June 13th, more women than men have set FKTs in Oregon and Washington! WHAT!! 53% of the FKTs set in this region were set by women, and that’s incredible!
I had missed this announcement earlier this month. Marta was on Singletrack at the beginning of the year (on episode 217) and she shared the inspiration for the project and her ambitious goals. Now, just halfway through the year women have already eclipsed men in setting FKTs in the PNW and the project has gained huge media attention. Love everything about it.
