Alexander Glenn, a 24-year-old ultrarunner from western Canada, is on Day 2 of his attempt to break Jim Willett's supported Bruce Trail FKT of 10 days, 14 hrs. He has done some ultras, including two Canadian Death Race finishes, but he has never hiked on the Bruce Trail. Unlike most BT record seekers, he has chosen to start in Queenston and head toward Tobermory. He is being supported by his Dad.
His first day was rainy, slick and tougher than expected. He covered 82 km but he is aiming for about 100 km per day in hopes of finishing the 900-ish km BT in 8.5 to 9 days.
You can watch his SPOT tracker and he has invited local runners to join him since he'd love some company on the trail.
