227RE: [ws100] What to wear?
- May 10, 2011Just because there is snow on the ground doesn't mean it is cold. Last
year, we ran the first 10-miles in the snow and the air temperature was
around 80-deg F. Even though the race starts at 5am, the sun rises almost
immediately. A good rule of thumb is that whenever the sun it up, plan on
it being HOT. In my experience, the only time you need to worry about being
warm is during the night, especially if you are doing a lot of walking.
Last year it was warm enough all night that shorts were just fine. However,
it can get cold at night, so I always have long pants and a jacket in my
drop bag at Foresthill to use just in case. The only other thing I would
say is that you can get cold if it is raining. I have a bunch of those
small (and cheap) emergency ponchos that I stick in every drop bag just in
case a storm comes up.

start? What about running in the snow? Do runners change into long running
trousers at night? What about bad weather, does it ever rain? or possibly
