Find Your True North

EJ Maldonado


Husband, father, runner. A past college athlete, EJ found himself in the cycle of the daily grind and living a sedentary lifestyle for 15+ years. An awakening coupled with a major shift in lifestyle, he embraced the teachings of Eastern philosophy and running. Over the past five years and 130 pounds lighter, he has transformed his life to become the ultrarunner he is today. He is the current President and Run Director for the Tahoe Mountain Milers, co-RD for Escape from Prison Hill, and an active member of the trail running community in the Reno/Sparks/Carson City/Lake Tahoe area. He has two 100 mile finishes (Zion and TRT), as well as multiple finishes in various ultra distances, and he is looking at his first 200 mile finish in 2017. When he’s not running, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, traveling, cooking, Perrier, and talking about running.
