    The 50K option of this race is run on a single 50K loop through the Long-leaf pine forests of Kisatchie National Forest. The trail allows ATVs and horses, so becomes very rutted and eroded with numerous wet spots that become muddy. There are also some short sections with loose, white sand. The race support and organization were second to none though. The aid stations were well-supplied with a range of beverages and ultra fare, including one that had bean burrito wraps and quesadillas. Most of them also had PB&J sandwiches, along with Gatorade, water, Coca-cola, and ginger ale. The best part was at the finish where they had their own branded Red Dirt Ultra beer and plenty of delicious Louisiana gumbo. The weather was pleasant this year and dry, although the trail was pretty wet. The bling included long-sleeved cotton shirts and a nice medal with the silhouette of Louisiana. The soft trail was easy on the feet, but you did have to watch out for a few roots and rocks in places. Overall, it turned out to be an enjoyable morning run in the National Forest.

    Thanks, Mike. This 50 state quest has been a long journey. I know that I'll miss it when I'm done.
