Xtreme10 Called Off

With several inches of rain and heavy flooding, race director John Gervase regretfully has called off this morning's Sam's Club Waterfall Glen Extreme 10. An e-mail from the race will go out later with a possible new date. There is still thunder and lightning out there with a ton of rain as I write this. A few hours later, race official Meghan Kennihan said rescheduling is under consideration. That will require talks with the DuPage County Forest Preserve District. Nothing is for sure right now.

Strange, you posted at 4:40 AM but they didn't call the race off till 7:00 AM. Wish I had read your posting before I trucked down there and then had the nightmare getting home with 294 closed.

That time of posting is misleading. It's Pacific time. It actually was 6:40 a.m. CDT, which still was 20 minutes before they announced that the race was off to the people there. I was told for sure at 6:35 that it was off.
