Weather Update regarding Expo Run & course information for Sunday!
The current forecast for SATURDAY is we are expecting 3-5 inches. SUNDAY looks to be clear and cold. The race course is in much better condition then before and we have made a few minor adjustments to the course.
We will be salting and managing the course, paying attention to a few existing troubled areas. Chances are that there will be snow cover on the course on race day. GLM HIGHLY suggest, being a WINTER RUN SERIES to prepare for winter conditions and dress appropriately and the use of traction control on your shoes. We are looking forward to a exciting and safe run!

We know your time is valuable & not everyone wants to sit through an hour long award ceremony. We've streamlined the process for you by using receipt readers. We use reciept readers as a quick and easy way for you to get an idea of where you've placed in your age group and overall. Results are not official, however. Slight adjustments (athletes changing races, adjusting DOB) need to be varafied and completed before results become official. After each race an official listing of results can be found inside the bright yellow GLM trailer. Thank you for racing with us and we look forward to your participation in all our events throughout the year!
