Race Day Forecast


Race Day, 2014, was about as good as it gets, weatherwise!  The morning started out with a cool, low temperature of 49°.  By the start of the race, it was in the mid-50s.  It quickly warmed up into the 60s and low 70s for much of the race.  The high for the day hit 80° later in the afternoon after the race ended.

The rain showers that were lingering late Saturday had already come to an end by Sunday morning.  There was a bank of fog over the Start Line coming off of Lake Champlain early on.  But the fog dissipated, and it was brilliantly sunny for the rest of the day, with just a few clouds hovering near the horizon.  Humidity levels were very comfortable (dewpoints in the 40s) and the wind started out calm, and only picked up lightly during the race from the SSW.
