Alright Cap City Crossers, we’ve got one last party for you! One last day of pain and suffering before the long, cold and boring winter months! One last race to prove that you are, in fact, the greatest amongst your peers.
This week we’ll be wrapping the series up in Marysville, OH at Mills Creek Park. The presenting squad, Back Room Coffee Roasters, has informed us that the course will be mostly flat, fast and a few technical wooded sections. That doesn’t mean boring though, the weather may play a large factor in the course conditions.Thus far the outlook is that it should stay frozen through the week and looks to warm up a bit on Sunday. That means the snow won’t be going anywhere, anytime soon. . . Or until race day. Prepare for frozen, snowy conditions in the morning and sloppy, peanut butter-y mud in the afternoon.
