Appalachian speed-hiker celebrated in movie


Ultramarathoner Karl Meltzer, who speed-hiked the Appalachian Trail with the help of beer and bacon, is celebrated in a new movie, “Karl Meltzer: Made to be Broken.”

Available for free, and streaming on Netflix, the movie follows the ups and downs of Melter’s ridiculously fast jaunt from Maine to Georgia, which he completed in 45 days 22 hours and 38 minutes.

It was, at the time, the fastest known through-hike of the trail.
