Clearwater Classic Ultra 50K – Clearwater, Fl 01-17-2016

What a day!  Severe thunderstorms, tornados, rain, and 35+ mph sustained winds. What more perfect weather to run a race in. We were out today shooting for Gameface Media for the Clearwater Classic 5K, Half Marathon, Marathon, and Ultra 50K.  The day started off with a line of severe thunderstorms moving through the area around 3am.  The race decided to delay the start by an hour to let the line of storms move through and that was a good call.  Unfortunately this caused the marathon and ultra 50k sections of this race to be cancelled.  After the storms moved through, there were sustained 35+ mph winds which made for a very difficult run.  People were glad to be done with this one at the end. A well organized event with good communication about the weather issues and overall event notifications. Hope to be back at this one next year!
