Endurance athlete RJ Thompson is attempting to break the Long Trail speed record, unsupported. In August 2017, the right window of weather will set RJ on his quest.
In 2014 RJ attempted the feat, but was sidelined with injuries.
All contributions and donations to RJ's record attempt will support Vermont Youth Conservation Corps. VYCC is a 501c3 non-profit conservation and education organization with the mission of teaching young people personal responsibility through meaningful work that connects us to the land, community, and one another. VYCC programs operate year-round, throughout Vermont and beyond.
