I figured there was, got me outta bed at 11:30 to look at the weather. I got 2 trees down in my yard also, kinda freaky, im only a few miles away and noone even knew! Btw, we'll be there this weekend, hoping to see everyone! Bonfire at my house afterwards!

Ron, will the course be available to pre-run Friday? How about before the race Saturday.

Also, will we be able to pre-run at race speed, or just trail pace. (that might be up to Rich or you, not sure). If you allow pre-running at speed, obviously people need to be off the course that aren't racing.
