There were no finishers in the 2015 Reverse Ring. The orange trail, with a healthy assist from the weather gods, was the winner this year. 4 degrees at the start, and 35 degrees nearly 19 hours later when Cam Baker was the last runner to call it a day after completing the Reverse Fishhook. In between several inches of snow and an increasingly howling wind made this the most challenging Reverse Ring since the Great Postholing Race in 2010. Technically, virtually all of the runners missed or were on track to miss the hard cut-off times at either Moreland Gap or Camp Roosevelt. Congratulations to all of this year’s Reverse Ring runners for putting in strong efforts on an incredibly challenging day. And thanks to an amazing cast of volunteers for coming out to support the runners in a fashion that drew raves from all of the participants.
