UNFINISHED BUSINESS: JIM WALMSLEY ON PROJECT CARBON X 2

Project Carbon X 2

ABOUT PROJECT CARBON X2

At the first Project Carbon X in 2019, HOKA athletes attempted the 100K world record, with some attempting to break six hours – far faster than the current mark of 6:09:14 (men’s) and 6:33:11 (women’s). Along the way, Jim Walmsley set a new 50-mile world best of 4 hours, 50 minutes and 8 seconds. Set the bar to impossible, they said; you never know how high you’ll get when you reach for it.

The men’s 100 mile world record is 6:09:14 (set by Japan’s Nao Kazami in 2018) while the women have a time of 6:33:11, which was set by Japan’s Tomoe Abe in 2000.

On Saturday, January 23, (3am Sunday, Jan 24th NZST) with an all-new update in the Carbon X 2, the bar will be set again. This is Project Carbon X 2: HOKA athletes will again take on the 100K world record from Chiba, Japan and the Phoenix, Arizona area wearing an all-new innovation from HOKA.

There will be eight women in total racing in Arizona including Canadian 50-mile record holder Catrin Jones and Camille Herron, who are genuine threats to Abe’s 20-year-old record.
