Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine recently named the winner of their Person of the Year award. This year's winner is Warren Doyle who will be attempting his 16th thru hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2010. He's nearly 60 years old! He also currently holds the record as the person who has hiked the AT the most times.

The magazine did a nice article on Doyle. It was written by Jennifer Davis who currently holds the women’s Appalachian Trail speed record after completing the 2176-mile trek in just 58 days in 2008.
