Coree Woltering Sets FKT for Ice Age Trail

Ultrarunner Coree Woltering set the Fastest Known Time for the 1,200-mile Ice Age Trail on June 22, running the breadth of Wisconsin in 21 days, 13 hours, and 35 minutes.

Woltering arrived in the rain at 8:35 p.m. CT on Monday, June 22, at the eastern terminus of the trail at Potawatomi State Park in Sturgeon Bay, according to a post on the Ice Age Trail Alliance Facebook page.

The previous FKT was 21 days, 18 hours, and 7 minutes, set by Annie Weiss of Milwaukee in 2018.

Woltering, 30, of Ottawa, Illinois, raised money during his run for the volunteer-maintained Ice Age Trail and Feeding America, which provides more than 4.3 billion meals per year to people in the United States.

“Coree and his husband, a professional skydiver, live in Ottawa, Illinois (#CornfieldCowboys). Coree champions diversity in the outdoor world so that everyone can find a role model who looks like them,” according to The North Face, one of his sponsors.
