2001 MS 50 Trail Run

The leader in the 50 K, Dana Stetson,  comes thru the last aid station

The female leader, Chrissy Ferguson,  is just a few minutes behind

Typical scene on the course in 2001. 
1999 was very wet, but 2001 set the new record.
This is not one of the numerous creeks
(note they are not swimming), this is just a low spot on the trail

Marvin Overstreet and Iva Lightsey are just 2 miles from the finish line

Despite the record rain, everyone seemed to have a great time
