RunVermont issues initial weather statement
Like you, we are paying very close attention to weather forecasts for race weekend. We will continue to monitor the weather over the next several days. Weather monitoring is never limited to simple race day temperature forecasts, but also includes factors such as humidity, radiant heat and wind speed.
Our first and foremost concern is the safety of our participants. We are confident in our supplies of water, electrolyte-replacement drinks and ice and have an information plan in place for altering runners about the weather throughout the duration of the race. If high temps are predicted for race day, sprayers will be available in Oakledge Park, Leddy Park and Fire Station 4 located on North Ave. In addition, we encourage neighborhood residents to run hoses to the street for the use of runners.
The current race day forecast is available here.
Runners can next expect an official statement from RunVermont related to the weather on Friday, May 25.
