Ever run in a typhoon? If you ran the inaugural Mountain Lakes 100 you may still be suffering post-traumatic stress from the weather. With 60 mph peak gusts and 5.5 inches of rain during the race, runners were definitely put to the test.
We ended up making the call to stop the race about 9:00 pm as we were losing communication with the HAM radio operators between aid stations, some runners were hypothermic, a tree blew down on a car and it was only getting worse.
Odds of another typhoon during this year’s race are extremely rare. But we understand that those who experienced that weather last year aren’t keen to take a chance this year. So we’ve come up a Weather Promise.
We are so sure the weather will be just fine this year that we will refund your money if we’re wrong. Here’s how it will work:
So there you go; no excuses. The weather will be great for this race, or you don’t have to do it and you get your money back.
