Guidelines/FAQAdopted from Fastest Known Time and bent for BCR use
What is a BCR FKT?
BCR FKT is an archive of fastest known times for various routes, both on trail and road. We recognize everyone isn't on Strava chasing and creating segments.
Who can Submit route and time?
Bold Coast Runners in good membership standing. ie, paid annual dues and submitted waiver to club secretary.
How to establish a FKT?
Announce your intentions via Google Groups (email@example.com), invite folks if you'd like, and submit FKT here!
I didn't set a new FKT or complete the route, can I still submit my attempt?
anyone who completes a route as announced and intended can submit their FKT. If you did not complete the course as intended do not make a submission via the form. Tell us about it though!
How are BCR FKT's displayed?
Bold Coast Runners will create a document for each route - listing route details, runner details and times listed in chronological order with newest first.
What about other activities like cycling, skiing, climbing, or swimming?
We love these activities, too, but we're currently focusing our efforts only on running and hiking
How should I record my time?
The time includes elapsed time from start to finish of the prescribed route, including all non-moving time. FKTs always count “elapsed time,” never “moving time”. Don't stop that watch and do turn on auto-pause.
How are times verified
BCR works on the honor system. Cheaters aren't welcome. Please submit course map via Strava, mapmyrun, Garmin Connect, google pedometer, or other mapping means.
What makes a route worthy of inclusion?
Ideally, the route has some interest & integrity, be it aesthetic, historical, or otherwise. For the purposes of BCR route must be unique, and repeatable by others at any time of the year.
