As Letsrun.com is one of our official sponsors, I'm going to try and respond to viable message board concerns and questions regarding the 2007 USA Cross Country Championships that are coming to Boulder on February 10th.
In regards to the snow, it is true that we seem to be buried in the stuff lately. It’s been nearly a record snowfall for the last four weeks and it has been making the running difficult at best.
Although February is actually the second driest moth of the year in Boulder, we have a contingency plan in place in the event of snow. We do have it built into our contract with the city that all reasonable efforts will be made to clear the snow from the course, spectator and parking areas. Granted, if we get a blizzard like storm, city snow plows will concentrate their first efforts on clearing public byways and emergency routes first. We have also secured the date with a private snow plow company to further our efforts. In addition, the golf course has its own fleet of snow removal equipment and is prepared to use it. In fact, they will be plowing the course early next week (once the snow stops falling) to facilitate the drying process.
We look forward to seeing you in Boulder,
