J&J Race and Trail Running Reunion 2016

It was so much fun finding myself back at Camp Eagle where this race began many years ago as the “Camp Eagle Trail Runs.” With miles and miles of pristine single track, lots of gnarly deer paths, exotic wildlife, constant elevation gain or loss, beautiful vistas, a spring-fed river chock full of cold clear water, dry creek-bed descents and stars like crazy, this place is really one of a kind for running in this part of the country.
