115 volstaters answered the call from the landing in Dorena this morning at 0741.
113 of them even managed to get to The Ferry in time for the official start.
The morning tractor trailer traffic between Hickman, KY and Union CIty, TN is not singing their praises right now….but the runners are off. Most of them still on course record pace.
In a few minutes, the leaders will reach a huge milestone….less than 300 miles to go!
How many will still be on course record pace tonight?
How many will still be in front of Oprah tomorrow morning?
How many will make it to The Rock?
What happens for the next 10 days will be different for every runner, but for every runner it will be….. exactly what they came here for.
