Carl Touchstone Memorial Mississippi 50 Trail Volunteer Run
|Each year a Carl Touchstone Memorial
Mississippi 50 Trail Volunteer Run is held shortly before the open
event. This is a closed race for specially qualified* ultra runners only.
The Volunteer run is an official MS50 Trail run, and counts toward the ten
The 2011 Mississippi Trail 50 Volunteer Run was held Saturday February 19th. The day started out a little cool and warmed up fast to about 80 degrees. Normally not very hot for Mississippi but with lows below freezing and unusually cold temperatures until the last weeks the high presented a challenge for all runners unaccustomed to a little heat.
We will see all volunteer runners and many more
volunteers on race day. Thanks to all.
A quality race could not be put on without these knowledgeable, able, runners willing to sacrifice the time and effort involved. They give up their chance to be an open participant in the only ultra run in Mississippi. The Volunteer Run gives them the opportunity to run an equally challenging (and even more prestigious ?) Spring ultra locally. Many thanks and Kudos to all those who participate in the Volunteer Run.
