We’ve all heard of Punxsutawney Phil, the little furry guy in Pennsylvania who comes out, sees his shadow, and declares six more weeks of winter. Then there’s Augustus T.

    Very fun race and great production, but many first timers don’t realize that the park trails are not cleared so the course difficulty will vary from year to year, sometimes having snow and ice, which is part of the fun and challenge just be prepared!

    If it snows… a lot… you are in for a BIG challenge. In 2014, when I ran this, there was about 8 inches of snow the night before. It took me longer to run the half-marathon than it usually takes to run a full, that’s how much difficulty the snow added. The other challenge is the 3ish mile loop that you have to keep running (a la the film Groundhog Day), but the post-race spread (great craft brews and homemade chili!) makes all the effort worthwhile. Great volunteers and organization!
