Race Day Forecast



The race has come and gone.  And that unusually potent storm system has also come and gone.  But it hung around just long enough to give us one of the wettest, chilliest, and windiest VCMs.

Rain showers persisted through the race, fairly light most of the time.  But occasionally, the rain would come down harder.  Temperatures barely budged, stuck in the low-to-mid 40s for the entire race.  And the wind was strong and blustery out of the north the whole time.

And yet, a good time was had by all!

We hope you have found this tailored-for-race forecast helpful in making your preparations for running.

And the prediction for next year's race?  Good times and great accomplishments - again!
