|From Clinton Lake-Oct-2007|
For now, here is the forecast for the race:
Friday night: Low of 47 with rain
Saturday: High of 58, windy, with chance of rain
Every year seems to be windy, so I believe that part of the forecast. The rain could be hit or miss. Right now the trail is in good shape...mostly dry and fairly smooth. There are lots of leaves on the trail, so be wary of hidden rocks and roots. There aren't many rocks on the course, but there are roots all around. I haven't had too many problems stumbling over roots in training runs. My guess is after 20 miles, you'll start to let your feet and legs drag a bit and you may find a few roots grabbing your feet. This isn't a road race, so I assume if you signed-up, you are comfortable with basic trail running. One warning...if it does rain, the wooden bridges/planks will be slick. I counted 33 bridges on the 10-mile loop--be careful crossing the bridges!
