    Why is the race starting at 10am. The heat and humidity for this area will be pretty close to unbearable by then. Why not start at 8am.

    • The race is to promote the Colonial Beach Blues Festival, which starts at 1 or 2pm that day. We have the race closer to the start of the blues festival to hopefully keep runners in the area for the festival later that day. I understand it will more than likely be in the 90s. We will have water stations along the course to help counteract the heat.
