Pharr Davis Breaks Appalachian Trail Record

We ultrarunners are a unique breed. We do shit that the majority of our friends, family, and the rest of the world cannot even phantom. Guess what? I am proud to be in a special class of athletes which know no boundaries!

Take Pharr Davis. She not only broke the record for running and trekking through the rough, rugged, and grueling Appalachian Trail (AT) … She also beat some highly talented runners that have successfully completed the trail – all male.

She covered the AT in “46 days, 11 hours, 20 minutes. She beat the previous best time of 47 days, 13 hours, 31 minutes, set by Andrew Thompson in 2005!”
