Karel Sabbe has run dozens of ultramarathons and is the current speed record holder for the Pacific Crest Trail and Appalachian Trail. He was last man standing in the 2019 Barkley Marathons.
Running thousands of miles, Karel has made just about every possible ultra trail running mistake. He created the Ultra Trail Coaching platform to prevent you from making the same mistakes, and get you to your race in your fittest, healthiest and happiest possible state!
In 2016 Karel set the speed record on the 4300km long Pacific Crest Trail. Averaging over 80km a day he ran from Mexico to Canada in a record time of 52 days, 8 hours and 25 minutes.
2 years after the Pacific Crest Trail, Karel tackled the Appalachian Trail, breaking the speed record by over 4 days, running the trail over 5 days faster than Scott Jurek and over 4 days faster than Karl Meltzer. He averaged 86km a day and was the first to complete the trail in under 6 weeks.
In 2019, Karel decided to have a go at one of the hardest races of the world: the infamous Barkley Marathons, with only 15 finishers in 35 years time. While Karel wasn’t able to finish the race, he did end up being last man standing on his first attempt. Watch the documentary here:
