LAVS – July 22, 2013 – Vol State – final report – by laz

The Vol-State Road Race (314 miles on foot) ended on July 21, 2013, with the final finisher reaching Castle Rock, Georgia with just over 50 minutes to spare. A number of records were set, with Joe Fejes, of Hoschton, Georgia breaking the overall course record in a time of 3 days 8 hours 10 minutes and 16 seconds (3:08:10:16). Californian Alan Abbs broke the unaided course record with a time of 4:11:31:27. The top female finisher was Sherry Meador of Alabama (7:02:42:52). Eight runners completed the distance in less than 6 days, topping the magical number of 50 miles per day. The total of 33 finishers was also a record. Five relay teams also participated, with all of them reaching the finish. The course begins at Dorena Landing, Missouri and crosses the Mississippi River on a ferry before traveling diagonally across Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, and ending at Castle Rock, Georgia. With over 300 miles of the course in Tennessee, the name Vol-State Road Race is quite appropriate.

Lower than normal temperatures contributed greatly to the record results, with only half the days having high temperatures in the 90’s. None the less, the Tennessee humidity challenged all entrants as much as the immense distance. Small town Tennessee lived up to its reputation for true southern hospitality with every participant speaking in glowing terms of the warm reception and encouragement they received from the people they met along the way.
