Not many Americans know much about either Adam Campbell or the CCC. Both are stars in the trail running world. Adam Campbell is the current Canadian 50 mile national champion. The CCC (Courmayeur, Champex, Chamonix) is a 98 km sister to The North Face Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc and is probably the most competitive trail 100k(ish) race in Europe. Did I forget to mention that Campbell’s 50 mile championship was a Canadian trail 50 mile national record [broken link removed]? Yeah, 5:44 ain’t half bad. On Friday, he managed to place second in the CCC in 10:29:33…. it was his first ever run over 6 hours! Get to know this great Canadian and the race he ran in the following interview.
