Yesterday, we asked the question: “What are your ideal weather conditions to run a race?”
We got a lot of great responses, so we thought we’d consolidate them so you can see what others in the Gametiime community had to say about the perfect race weather.
Here’s the list of responses. Feel free to comment below if you’d like to chime in!

|Lonnie St John – Damp out, but not raining. Temp depends on distance, but 40-45 is a nice range. Longer the race the cooler I prefer.|
|Phong Nguyen – Overcast. 50s. Maybe even a sprinkle here and there.|
|Jeannie Gilbert – Overcast and 50s to 60s|
|Lance Eggers – Get some good rain gear and run/walk in the rain all the time. I don’t care so much on the temps.|
|Mom vs. Marathon – Cloud cover, maybe a teeny bit of mist.|
|Scott Zaffram – All of the above. I don’t like it over 65* and I don’t like it under 45*.|
|Fiona Van Alstyne – Cold and sunny. Mid 30s-low 40s. Like rain too unless it means a mudbath on the trail|
|Michael Arau – Sixties, sunny and breezy.|
|Rebecca (@rebeccaontherun) – @gogametiime Sunny but brisk, in the 50s or 60s. No rain or wind.|
