Lauren Jones hails from deep in the heart of the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains. She started trail running in May of 2019 and fell head over heels (on the trail, and in love with the sport). She co-founded the Blue Ridge chapter of Trail Sisters in the Summer of 2019 and is most well known in her group for being “directionally challenged,” but says it’s just her sense of adventure calling her. Lauren also enjoys hiking with her son, Jantzen, and her newest Tiny Trail Sister, Jamison. When she’s not putting feet to dirt, Lauren also enjoys teaching kickboxing classes, calligraphy, and 90s R&B.
