Equinox Weather

Runners, Joggers, Hikers, and Walkers:

There’s a reason why some call this one of the toughest marathons in the world...PLEASE READ –>

Saturday looks like there will be chilly rain. We want everyone to be safe, so we are advising people to have rain gear. Bring hats, headbands and gloves – be prepared.

There is a chance of snow on top of Ester Dome in the morning, but the possibility of snow at the top increases during the day Saturday as a cold front moves through the valley.

We will have a warm-up shack at the top of Ester Dome if anyone needs it for an emergency. There is no bag or clothing drop, however.  You may leave a bag with your relay team member.

If you have questions, please ask our race officials.
