I know a lot of people have heard about Michael Popov's attempt to break the John Muir Trial Record (Supported) this year.
It turns out that he may not be able to do the attempt if he can not find 2 more people that can help pace him.
It is extremely hard to round up help, but I know there are many people here that love to be up and on the JMT.
His attempt will be from Aug 3rd-6th.
He is looking for a pacer at the end of the first day, (the last 20 miles) and on the third day from Reds Meadow to Tuolumne, (32.5 miles)
I believe he is trying to go from Reds to Tuolumne in 11.5 hours. That is not too difficult for some of you out there.
There is a huge emphases on going now do to the fact that Kilian Jornet, Salomon's poster boy is going for the attempt later on this year.
Michael knows the trail and is sure he will be able to post a time that even Kilian will have hard time beating.
That and who wants to give up the record to someone overseas?
They already put Sue Johnston, (the current record holder) on Team Salomon so they can have her insight on breaking the record.
If you or anyone you know is able to help please let me know.
