Runners from All 50 States are Getting the Blues!
The Mississippi Blues Marathon and Half Marathon achieved one of its long-stated goals on October 30 when a New Hampshire runner submitted his race entry, representing the 50th state registered for the 2014 event. Race Director John Noblin stated that this milestone is something the race has been working for years: "One of the original ideas behind the Blues Marathon was to put together an event that would show off Jackson to visitors from out of the area. Collectively, we’ve had runners from all 50 states and about 15 countries over the years but we had never drawn from all 50 states in a single year. Achieving this goal really points to the quality of our event, which is a reflection of our sponsor, BlueCross BlueShield of Mississippi, and all the volunteers who make the runners feel so welcome. Hospitality is something this race, and this city, has become known for throughout the national running community.” Read More
