Way to go, Nikki!  We are so proud of you!  Nikki set a new women’s record on the Long Trail, completing the 273-mile run in 5 days, 7 hours and 42 minutes, running the 5th fastest time ever recorded on the trail.

Above: Nikki has blown us all away with her courage, tenacity and determination on the trail.  Thanks for being such an inspiration to us!

Below: Nikki and her lead pacers, Dennis Ball and Jenny Pierce, pose at the finish.  The Southern Terminus of the Long Trail is located at the Vermont-Massachusetts state line near Williamstown, MA.

Please stay tuned as we’ll continue to post updates, photos and video clips of the expedition now that we’re off the trail and have solid internet access.

We’ll also pass along updates on the film as we enter post-production this fall.  We’re shooting for a nationwide release on PBS in early 2013, and are working to set up additional national (and potentially international) distribution outlets, including broadcast television, film festivals, community screenings and online release.

Many thanks to everyone who supported us on this expedition, and congratulations to the Kimball family, friends, support team, film crew and news media outlets across the states of Vermont and Montana who made this amazing adventure possible!
