Team Results

In the Chattahoochie National Forest on Friday, Rob Youngren completed a week long effort to set the fastest known time on the 335 mile Pinhoti National Recreation Trail. What began on Saturday, May 1 at 6:00 am atop Flagg Mountain in Alabama, culminated 6 days 8 hours and 48 minutes later at the Benton MacKaye Trailhead where Rob earned the distinction of being the fastest human ever to complete the trail. Rob proved his strength as be ran an average of 52 miles per day through tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, poison ivy, chigger bites and blazing heat into the low 90's.  Rob began the epic adventure run with Eric Charette, who made it 171 miles to the Alabama/Georgia state line in 4 days 5 hours 39 minutes and 12 seconds. This was the 2nd fastest time ever recorded for this Alabama Pinhoti, behind the time that Rob had set the day before. Crewing the duo along the way was fellow team mate Josh Kennedy. Providing crew support and pacing duties along the way were team mates David Riddle, Kathy Youngren, Dink Taylor, Blake Thompson, Joey Butler, Eric Fritz and DeWayne Satterfield
