Firefighter Sal Coll
On Thursday, July 11th, Sal Coll, a fifty-eight year old firefighter from Sequoyah Volunteer Fire Department, will participate his 8th year in the Volunteer State Road Race. The race will start at the Kentucky/Tennessee state line where Coll will run 314 miles across the state of Tennessee and end at Castle Rock on Sand Mountain on July 21st.
Coll started running in 1983 as a participant in the Gillette Marathon in London, England and has finished 137 Ultra Run events. Since then, he continues his dedication to training and staying shape for these events. “Training in this heat and being on your feet for long periods of time is a challenge. At my age, finishing these types of events, brings a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction to me. This race is also a reunion of Ultra runners from around the world” says Coll.
Coll recently completed his Firefighter 1 certification in May and will have ran over 25,000 miles after this event.
