Will the torrential rains hold off? How long is the oppresive humidity going to last? It doesn't matter, The Sharon Sprint Triathlon is happening!
Rain. No thunder, no lightning, just rain. Heavy rain had washed out most of the course marking. There was a group of 3 runners who lead the race from start to finish. At each and every interesection, they would pause to get a detailed fix and determine the course direction. Almost everyone succumbed to the washed away course marking. There were some traces; enough for most of the runners to complete the course (many with significant additional mileage) in a competitive challenge to make it to the finish before the next deluge. There was plenty of mud, standing water, and ultra-slick bridges and rocks. More than than half the field ran the course along the edge of safety versus speed. Mark Oliver is a seasoned trail racer and a smart runner. The technical challenges involved with trail racing far exceed those of road racing in both physical and mental capacities. If you've never done a trail race, try it. The People's Forest 7-Mile Trail Run is a great trail race for beginners. Under today's conditions, beginners shouldn't be discouraged, intermediates should grow with this experience, and experts should have felt abit challenged by this beginners course.
Thank you to the runners, volunteers, and spectators.
Happy Friday the 13th!
