Introduction to Fastpacking
February 2 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm ESTFree
Looking to take your fitness into the wild with an epic multi-day adventure? Fastpacking might be for you.
What is fastpacking? Fastpacking is the intersection of ultrarunning and backpacking, carrying a much lighter pack than traditional backpackers and covering ground quickly. I did a deep dive getting ready for fastpacking the 211-mile John Muir Trail through the high Sierras in under six days. I’ll share my key lessons learned.
Isn’t it early in the year to think about a summer adventure? There is a heavy gear component to fastpacking. I recommend having a list so you’re ready to pounce on deals as they arise. It will also give you time to dial in your gear – super important because it could save your life. Additionally, you’ll need to secure permits up to six months in advance for popular routes such as the JMT.
Sounds amazing, when is it? Tuesday Feb 2 at 8:00PM EST.
