Response to Ted Keizer Seeking to Climb All South 6000 Foot Peaks This Week


Despite almost continuous rain and fog, Keizer managed to run and hike approximately 60 miles a day for a total distance of 300 miles over the 40 peaks.
During his three months of training for the trail run, Keizer base-camped in Asheville, N.C. To prepare for the challenge, he hiked the whole course and climbed to the summit of each peak several times. This strategy allowed him to navigate the trails from memory and without having to rely on a map or GPS system.
He said he next wants to break the current record of 4 days and 15 hours for running the 272-mile Long Trail along the spine of the Green Mountains the full length of Vermont.,1651,TCP_1022_2066288,00.html
