Franks to compete in World Running Championships

September 3, 2013

Two last-minute decisions have led Starkville’s Meggan Franks to the world stage in mountain running.

The first, Franks said, came when she was training for the Canadian Marathon Championships in Ottowa, Ontario in April, running upwards of 95 miles per week. Back problems that had plagued her since college began to interfere with practice, she said, and she decided not to run that race just a few days before she was supposed to fly to Ottowa. But where one door closed, she said another opened at the Canadian Mountain and Trail National Championships (CMTNC) in Sutton, Quebec in the early summer.
