Mississippi blues

John Noblin, race director for the Mississippi Blues Marathon, spoke recently to the Rotary Club of North Jackson about the next running of the marathon, scheduled for January 27. Headed into its 11th year and with a new title sponsor in Continental Tire, the marathon has attracted runners from all 50 states and more than 15 countries.
