One Day to Clinton Lake 30 Miler!

The event we've all been waiting for is almost here! Just one more day to the 2nd annual Clinton Lake 30-Mile Trail Run. I have some good news to report...the bridge at the canoe access aid station side is repaired. That means runners won't have to jump across a wide-open section and risk falling 20 feet into icy water. Or the alternative favored by the race director was to have runners wade across the river--it's only 40 feet across and it's only waist deep and it doesn't flow that fast. Another benefit to having the bridge back is that volunteers can get back and forth from the start to the canoe aid station much easier. The other good news is the weather...

Current weather forecast for the race:
LOW: 28
HIGH: 50
PRECIP: Clear Friday. Partly sunny Saturday.
WINDS: Breezy with gusts around 21 mph.

We had steady drizzle/light rain all day Thursday with a few thunderstorms last night. Maybe a clear Friday will allow it to soak in and drain away. There will be quite a few spots of mud, but not like last year!

Chris say: Or the alternative favored by the race director was to have runners wade across the river

Ian say: then the RD recalled he was also signed up for said race so magically over night the road bridge was repaired.
