If you don’t need one of the trail courses (Tortoise & Hare, Danby Down & Dirty, Thom B, and Forest Frolic) to complete your FLRC Challenge, I recommend staying off them.
If you must run one of those courses, consider waiting a few days, since it’s supposed to warm up on Friday and rain on Saturday, which may improve the conditions. (Of course, it could also make them worse if the temperatures don’t rise enough.)
If you are hell-bent on running one of those courses, consider supplementing your trail shoes with micro-spikes or wear screw shoes for added traction. If the footing is still too iffy, drop back to hiking. Remember the FLRC Challenge motto: “Cover the ground.” Speed doesn’t matter when it comes to completing the distance.
Stay safe out there, and please, do report in here on trail conditions for the next week—we’re almost at the end of the year!
