Due to the high chance of thunderstorms Sunday morning, Sunday's event at Foxfield is cancelled.
Dear Charlottesville 10-Miler participants:
I have made a safety decision to restrict starting times this Saturday so that the latest wave will start no later than 0800.
The weather forecast for race day is calling for sun and temperatures into the mid 70's. Temperatures even mid morning are forecasted into the mid 60's. This represents a significant increase to the temperatures we have recently regularly experienced. It takes 7-14 days of regular and prolonged exposure to heat for us to acclimatize, thus the risk for heat illness is very real. This is compounded by the longer distance of this event and the prolonged sun exposure on the course.
To minimize risk for heat illness, take the following precautions:
Hydrate, but don't over hydrate: In general, 6 cups of fluid per day as a baseline, plus an extra cup of fluid for each 20 min of exercise is about right. Drink a cup of fluid with dinner and another between dinner and bedtime the night before the race. Drink a cup of fluid upon awakening and again sometime prior to the start. Fluids will be available at aid stations during the race. Avoid over hydrating, however, as this too can be risky.
Run conservatively. With sudden increases in heat stress it is difficult to hit goal times based on training in cooler temperatures.
Wear light loose fitting clothing.
Listen to your body; signs of heat illness include excessive fatigue, headache, lightheadedness, cramping, nausea and rapid heart rate. If you are experiencing these, it is important to get cooled right away.
The medical staff wishes all participants an enjoyable and safe race day!
