How much hiking can you do until your feet stop hurting?

I can usually go up to about 10-miles before my feet start getting sore.

I can keep hiking usually but they will get more sore as I go on.

How about you?

I saw on Strava that someone ran the R2R trail (159.6 miles) unsupported (no help, sleep rough) in under 72 hours this weekend! I bet their feet hurt!

I can conveniently hike for 7 miles if I am on comfortable hiking boots and plain terrain. If the boots and trail are not ideal, then in 6-7 miles my feet starts getting hurt.

I do hike close to 9 miles before I start feeling some discomfort on the feet. Hiking is an endurance exercise and I see these challenges as part of it. So, I do hike for 12 miles, most times!

That is a really good mileage to go for!
We usually average about 7 miles. But we also hike a lot through the week and bike as well.
