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 year award.

The 2013 Mississippi Trail 50 Volunteer Run was held on Saturday February 16th. The weather was ideal for running, a brisk 45-55°F.

We will see all the 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.
