thanks for your patience, runners.
getting answers from the state authorities has been very difficult; i’m sure they’re under a lot of stress with so many snow-related public safety issues. i just got an email from the dcr a few minutes ago. sadly, they’ve rejected our road closure requests for every weekend through the end of february. so it’s official – we will not be running down day boulevard. however, we continue with plans for a non-competitive “fun run” along the sidewalks & paths which flank the original race course. no timing, no awards. just good, healthy people running together.
we will be sending out an email later today; here’s what we know so far:
the weather forecast looks good.
mix1 is still coming with all-natural protein shakes.
harpoon brewery is still coming with cold beer (ufo & ipa).
whole foods market is still coming with hot soup & bread.
city sports back bay is still hosting race bag pick-up tomorrow (thursday) & saturday.
racemenu is still providing free bags, hats, beanies and (for the first 1,000 entrants) long-sleeve technical shirts.
we’ve got live music, a dance floor, lots of door prizes and a special guest speaker (stay tuned) so please come join us on sunday!
