Running the Waitukubuli Trail with Kyle Dietz
World of Adventure | Features • 4m 41s
MMA fighter-turned ultra runner, Kyle Dietz, has his sights set on the Waitukubuli National Trail in Dominica. The WNT is the longest continuous trail in the Caribbean, spanning 115 miles of wildly mountainous and volcanic terrain. Split into 14 segments, parts of the WNT are popular hiking trails, but up to this point no one has documented an attempt to run the trail straight through without stopping, which is exactly what Kyle set out to do. Kyle pulls from his experience as a runner and a fighter to tackle what turned out to be one of the greatest challenges he has faced as an athlete.
