Vegan hiker breaks Pacific Crest Trail record

Plant power! Vegan hiker Josh Garrett broke the Pacific Crest Trail record with a time of 59 days, 8 hours, 59 minutes, and an average of nearly 45 miles per day; beating the record set in 2011 by Scott Williamson of 64 days, 11 hours and 19 minutes.

“I’m vegan because I love animals, and they suffer so needlessly on factory farms and slaughterhouses, when a vegan diet provides everything we need for good health, strength, and endurance,” he said. “As much as I would have enjoyed taking my time on this hike, I wanted to be a good example and make a point.”

Josh has used the hike to bring attention to farmed animal cruelty, by raising funds for the national nonprofit Mercy For Animals. Stay tuned for an interview with Josh!
