Weather & Cutoffs:

These are low-traffic trails, so we expect this race to go off rain or shine. In the event of severe weather (highly unlikely in December) we will delay the start as necessary to avoid lightening. If severe weather threats the entire day and does not appear to let up, we may be forced to cancel. However this is not typical for this area during this time of year.

Average temperatures: Low 36F, High 56F

The cutoff for the 10K is 2 hr 30 min. This works out to be 24:08 min/mi pace. The Half Marathon cutoff is 3 hr 40min or 16:50 min/mi pace. If you cannot maintain 16 min pace we ask that you please consider running the 10k.
