The 2014 Last Annual Vol State 500K is underway. The race started in Dorena Landing, Missouri and will finish atop Sand Mountain in Georgia covering 314 miles along the way with 90% of those in the great state of Tennessee.
Greg Armstrong won the 2014 Last Annual Vol State 500K early this morning in a blazing 3 days 17 hours 50 minutes 52 seconds, the third fastest time ever. Read more about his win and race splits HERE.
Johan Steene will finish shortly as he had just 14 miles to go at the checkin this morning. Sue Scholl had a strong fourth day with 54 miles and sits at 270 miles currently. Fourth place is Emilio Nunez with 253 miles and has opened a 6 mile gap over the great Juli Aistars. Perhaps the biggest surprise on the day though was Cyndi Graves putting down 60 miles to move up to 7th place overall with 227 miles.
