Madison Marathon canceled due to heat

Postby Beaver » Sat May 26, 2012 8:40 am

What a shame. The whole 3 day weekend looks bad for outdoor sports and plans. Storms Sat and Mon, too hot Sun. How are we supposed to enjoy the outdoors this weekend?

Fyi for you east-siders, the half marathon is going on as planned.

Traffic will be affected from 6-11ish Sunday I'm guessing.

I'll be golfing Sunday. Dressing light of course, and making sure I'm well-hydrated and taking a cart.

Last June the high was 96 one day and I walked 18. It was OK, but I don't think I'll walk 18 again when it's on the 90's just the same.

It won't rain all day today or Monday. So just go out and enjoy the weekend.

HTFU people. Unless they did their training on the treadmill, I'm sure most of the runners were ready for the heat. I've run 3 marathons and trained for them in every sort of weather Wisconsin, Washington and Texas could come up with. If the promoter is worried about EMS calls then either get out of the business or move the event to when the weather in Wisconsin is perfect... when is that anyway?

They did the right thing.

Everyone had a really good time and everyone walked away.

Look forward to it next year.

I agree with bdog, for a change.
