After a decade as a dedicated rock climber, Jennilyn started ultra-running in 2012. She approaches running as climbers do routes, and she spends countless hours researching her lines on maps, reports, and google earth. Spending far more time chasing FKT’s than races, Jennilyn prefers running with friends in the backcountry than in any race. Her passion and dedication are strongest for ultra-length mountain running and adventure running.
