The Mad Marshal Dash was held at Marshall County High School on Thursday night and it was a very interesting experience. The race was only a 3200m, which is not the odd part. It had two different start lines, with complete teams drawing to start at either the A or B line. Each starting line ran a different first part of the race. At the 3/4 mile point in the race, the two courses merged together and finished at the same point.
