The Cumberland Trail Three Gorges Double consists of an out and back from Lower Leggett Rd trail head to this sections terminus at Mowbray Pike trail head and then a return to Lower Leggett Rd trail head. 68 miles
To my knowledge this has never been done, so this would be a first set time.
I plan to attempt on Sat October 22nd.
------------- I ran the route for an FKT of 16:00 hrs I started at 5:40am and finished at 9:40pm

On Saturday October 22nd I will attempt to do a out and back double route of the Cumberland Trail 3 gorges segment starting at Lower Leggett rd parking lot, out to the terminus of the section at Mowbray pike and then a return to Lower Leggett rd. 68 miles in total. I am doing this to establish a fastest known time (FKT) and to my knowledge only time time on this route in a singular push. In the spirit of the FKT I am publicly announcing my attempt.
Since I will be the first, to my knowledge to do this, I get to set the "rules". I will be 100% self sufficient, with the inclusion of water/food purchase at the store on HWY 111. So this will be a self supported attempt.
