2008 Mississippi 50 Trail Run

Arrangements for the Carl Touchstone Mississippi 50 Trail Run March 1,2008 are coming together nicely.Entries are limited to 200 due to permits and logistics. We already have over 40 entries, ahead of last year when we filled up in early January, so don’t wait too long to sign up.

The entry form is on the race web site or you can register on-line at Active.com.(You will get a small discount if you register on-line at Active.com, even after their fee.)All entrants will get a race t-shirt, pre-race meal at race headquarters, and post-race food at the race site. Trophies will be awarded to the top finishers as they finish. All finishers will get a finisher memento.

In addition, all 50 mile finishers will also receive a handsome 50 miler belt buckle. Details on the t-shirt, meals, and memento will be posted on the web site as soon as they are firm.50 mile, 50 K, and 20K options are available, and a unique feature of  the MS50 is that you can change your mind about which race you are in during the event. (But trophies will not be awarded to runners who switch races).Negotiations for the location of race headquarters in Laurel are underway (probably the train station as in 2007) and will be on the web site soon. Plan to come for the pre-race meal and briefing Friday night, and stay for the door prizes.Complete details on the 2008 race can be found on our web site at http://www.ms50.com .
