Jeremy Howard to Attempt FKT for The Play Brigade

Jeremy Howard is currently attempting the Fastest Known Time (FKT) of the Long Trail in VT. Specifically, he will attempt to run the 273-mile route in under 6 days completely unassisted. This markedly individual task will test every physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual faculty Jeremy has.

So why would anyone attempt such a feat? In Jeremy’s case, he says, “Completing my journey will be much more satisfying knowing I’ve done it while supporting The Play Brigade’s mission to help empower, influence and inspire people with disabilities. I have a brother with Down Syndrome and a family friend with a limb difference. I understand how important it is for them, and countless others, to feel a part of their community.”
