Weather & Safety Issues
We all know that the weather in New Jersey is day to day. The average low temperature on January 24 is 17 degrees and the average high temperature is 45 degrees. There may be snow or ice on the course, there may be rain, it may be muddy, and it may be nice. We will just have to wait and see what shows up on race day. The race will be run no matter what the weather!

Lewis Morris Park is a multi-use park that can see a lot of foot, bike, horse and vehicle traffic. However, in January, this traffic is fairly light.
