GotSkill? Sponsors Bruce Trail Ultra Run World Record Attempt

John Harrison Pockler aims to complete 890 km Bruce Trail in under 9 days and 21 hours


September 18, 2020 / Vaughan, Ontario – Ultrarunner John Harrison Pockler is outside of Shelburne, Ontario today on course to set a new world record for a solo run of the Bruce Trail through southern Ontario. The world-class ultramarathoner began this epic 890 kilometer run in Tobermory last Friday and, as an event sponsor, GotSkill? is with Pockler every step of the way.

John Harrison Pockler’s world record attempt is dedicated to supporting mental health and the Bruce Trail Conservancy. The public can learn more about the run and follow the progress of Pockler on the website www.brucetrailultra.com. The website also provides a way to make online donations.

“This ultrarun is very exciting and we are very pleased to be supporting John,” says Tony Carvalho, GotSkill? president. “His world record run attempt has shone the spotlight on Ontario. And John has shone a spotlight on two significant issues: the preservation of our environment and the importance of our mental health. It’s great that over the next ten days we can all watch and cheer John on as he races through some of the most beautiful sights in southern Ontario.”

“I encourage everyone to support John in his record breaking run and please donate to these important causes,” adds Carvalho.

The Bruce Trail is known as Canada’s longest marked footpath and oldest trail. Pockler will be running from north to south starting in Tobermory, passing Owen Sound, through the skiing country of Collingwood and the Blue Mountains, crossing Hamilton along the Niagara Escarpment to finish at Niagara Falls.

Pockler’s time to beat is 9 days, 21 hours and 14 minutes. Here is the direct link to http://brucetrailultra.com/home/
