There’s half-marathons, full marathons and ultra-marathons. And then there’s the Vol State run.Competitors in the competition, which began last week and can span 10 days, start in Dorena Landing, Mo. – just across the Tennessee border – and go all the way to Castle Rock, Ga. The journey allows runners to travel across Tennessee – 314 total miles – and this year, no woman was faster than Warren County local Sue Scholl.Scholl, 41, set the course record by finishing in four days, 12 hours, eight minutes and four seconds. Scholl was competing in the unsupported group, where she was left to find her own food and shelter while traveling from town to town across the state.
