2012 Report

February 25, 2012  •  Fort Valley, VA

18 starters, 7 finishers


7 of 18 runners who started the Reverse Ring on Saturday February 25 managed to overcome the cold and the WIND to make the full circuit of the Massanutten Trail. Keith Knipling took first with a time of 15 hours and 36 minutes, and the first woman was Kari Brown in 22 hours and 55 minutes. But The Story was Cam Baker, who finished dead last at the Reverse Ring, but who warmed up for the event the day before by running The Ring. The second finisher of a Double Ring, and the first to do it as a 142-mile out-n-back run, Cam’s total time was 51 hours and 25 minutes.
