Fred Lebow 5 Mile

Gotta love the competing notes on the NYRR Web site regarding this Saturday's Fred Lebow Classic .... (here's betting that, if there's any kind of signficant snowfall, it will become another one of those unofficial fun runs. Either way, probably not a good day to get a PR - so why not carouse in Brooklyn instead?)

There are still running spots available in the NYRR Fred Lebow Classic. If you wish to sign-up, please come to registration at NYRR, at 9 East 89th Street, during Number Pickup/Registration. See times below.

(and ...)

A snowstorm is predicted for Saturday morning, January 10. NYRR is watching the weather closely, but we do not, at this time, anticipate any changes to the NYRR Fred Lebow Classic. If changes are necessary, we will update this website by 6:30 a.m. on race morning. Please check here before leaving the house.

*** UPDATE Jan. 9 ****

As a couple of people have pointed out, the snow likely won't start until later in the day, making for clear, and cold, running conditions. Best of luck everyone!!!

only problem being that I have to leave my house before 6:30am if I want to make an 8am start.
didn't the winter races used to start later?

They've taken that "mixed message" off the website, now just a message indicating that the race is on, notwithstanding the poor weather forecast.

It isn't going to start snowing until much later in the day - weather should be cold and dry.
