Oxford Canal Walk FKT
On 10th July 2020, Andy Day and I decided to attempt a fastest known time (FKT) on the Oxford Canal Walk from Coventry to Oxford. As far as we were aware there was no previous registered time, so we thought this would be a great way of getting our first FKT without too much pressure. For me there was an added motivation because I was coming towards the end of a virtual race from Lands End to John O’Groats (LEJOG). I just needed to run another 83 miles (conveniently) to get the FKT but also finish the virtual LEJOG (endtoend.run – LEJOG Virtual Run). Double the motivation!
