Karl Meltzer AT Speed Record

Karl Meltzer set the Appalachian Trail speed record last year. Running 2,189 miles in 45 days, 22 hours. Not too bad. I'd love to run sections of the AT in 2-3 day intervals. Not a thru-hike or thru-run! Here is a short 10-minute video from Red Bull of Karl's achievement:

The full 44+ minute documentary can be found here at Red Bull TV.

I would recommend the section through the Smoky Mountain NP. Beautiful and challenging.

I've done several trails (including parts of the AT) in the Smoky Mtns. All really nice.
