Well, once again the weather is adding to the challenge that is Catherines FA 50k. It looks to only be 95 degrees on Saturday, with a thunderstorm or two thrown in to cool things off.
Due to the heat, I will again offer a shorter option of about 20+ miles. This is not an easy 20, as there is more than 4,200 feet of climbing, but this should allow people to finish their run before the worst of the heat hits. I would prefer people run the full route, but I also want to minimize any problems.
This shorter course will be the same of the full course except you will skip the Cub Run Road/Yellow/ Orange trail loop. If you are choosing this short option, please let the Pitt Spring AS know so they don’t wait for you. One down side of the short course is that you might have to wait for the party to begin as we might not be ready for you if you’re too quick!
Also, if anyone wants to bring any foods that are beyond the basic stuff CFA provides (burgers, hotdogs, brats, veggie burgers), please feel free.
If anyone on the runner list is not going to run, please let me know as soon as possible. I have wait list people eager to fill your spot.
