Runnin' of the Green
While the storm has yet to materialize as was forecasted just 24 hours ago, as usual with Colorado weather, mother nature likes to keep us guessing.
The storm has slowed down and is still quite variable as to the timing it will materialize and how much snow we will get (as you likely know from the coverage).
The current weather models now are now forecasting the brunt of the storm to develop overnight and into Sunday morning where winds can be above 20mph with snowfall rates in the 1” to 2” per hour. In an abundance of caution and safety, we are postponing tomorrow’s Runnin of the Green.
☘️Our makeup date is March 21st (next Sunday at Washington park).
☘️The packet pickup today at Boulder Running Company is still taking place (details below and parking is free, just get your ticket validated by the store). If you are unable to make it out today, you will be able to pick up at the event next weekend.
☘️If you are unable to make it on March 21st, you may move your registration to the virtual "Leprecauning it from Home" edition (check your email for instruction or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Thank you for your understanding and support. Postponing an event entails many factors, however, your safety is always our #1 priority.
We look forward to a Run of Good Luck and Running Green with you next weekend!
