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 2hr30min. This works out to be 24:08 min/mi pace. The Half Marathon cutoff is 3hr40min or 16:50 min/mi pace. If you cannot maintain 16min pace we ask that you please consider running the 10k.

REFUND & TRANSFER POLICY 

There are no refunds, deferrals, credits or friend / family transfers on entries. We do not mail shirts or medals to participants unable to make the event as left over shirts are donated.

I was a 2:27 marathoner that seemed to have hit the ceiling. It seemed that I couldn't break that time. I ran a 2:20 marathon this past fall and a big reason for that success was due to coaching and guidance. Coaching is like having a second set of eyes on a problem.

As an active duty service member we are taught "Attention to Detail." I was focusing on my stronger attributes while neglecting my weaker ones. My personal coach pointed a few things out and changed a few of my workouts and like magic; I smashed my PR in the marathon.
