This weekend we'll do a practice run on the actual Frostbite Festival 10-mile course. For anyone who is NOT planning to run the Jingle Bell 5k, we'll meet at FitClub West at 7 am on SATURDAY. Jingle Bell runners are planning to run on SUNDAY, and I'm assuming they will want to get started at 7 am as well.
All you Sunday runners are welcome to debate the starting time in the Comments area.
Here's a link to a map of the course: http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=158810
Thanks to Anne Baker and Duane Wilson, there will be water and Gatorade at two spots on the course on both days. One spot is just west of the Washington-Bradfordton intersection; the other spot is in front of the Wilson mansion. Thank you!
I realize that long-range weather forecasts aren't worth much, but it should be dry and mostly clear Saturday morning with the temperature in the high 30s. Sounds like PERFECT conditions for practicing the Frostbite!
