MFA Student Sets Colorado Trail Hiking Record

Mikaela Osler, MFA student in Creative Nonfiction, has shattered the fastest known time for a self-supported hike by a female on the 485-mile Colorado Trail. Hiking with blistered feet and little sleep, Osler averaged 45 miles a day to complete the trek from Denver to Durango on Aug. 9. It took her 10 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes, which beats the previous best time of 15 days, 2 hours, and 28 minutes set in 2018.
