This is FarFetched

FarFetched Enterprises is a new organization dedicated to supporting the trail running community in Rochester and the Finger Lakes Region. Our partnership began with race directing for the Innovative Edge Cross Country series. We enjoyed the experience so much, that we started up this little venture. Our first event was hosting the Trail Running Film Festival at the Little Theatre on April 22, 2023. Around the same time we approached Goose Adventure Racing about bringing back the Ontario Summit Trail Races in 2023, and they were gracious enough to let us give it a try. We'll be bringing back all these events for 2024, plus the new Common Ground Winter Trail Series. See you out on the trails!

Teague Ruder

Race Director

Teague began his running career at Fairport High School, where he was best known for having a much faster older brother. He continued running throughout college at SUNY Geneseo, where he first became teammates with Jamie. After a brief 20 year recovery period, Teague started up racing again, but now mainly hitting the trails. This renaissance soon coincided with a return to the Rochester area, and a renewal of his love for the people and places that make this running community so special.

Jamie Adams

Chief Runner, Assistant to the Race Director

Jamie started his race directing career early, by organizing races around the block with neighborhood kids. He continued on racing at East High School, and then on to SUNY Geneseo. Since then he's gone on to run some of the biggest trail races in the country. When not race directing, you'll likely find him running trails wearing a basketball jersey or playing basketball wearing a running jersey.
