Pouty Crying BabyThe Cape Elizabeth Mid-Winter Classic 10 Miler is (almost) always the first Sunday in February. This year, the race was cancelled and postponed until this weekend.

Unfortunately, another forecast for snow tonight and through the race tomorrow morning has led to another cancellation, and this time it will not be postponed. A Mid-Spring Classic is not going to happen.

This is sad, but there’s not much that can be done when roads and shoulders are already clogged with snow. Runners who are registered this year will be able to defer their entry to next year (you’ll receive an email when registration opens for the 2012 race) and you’ll also be able to get a discount on the new Race the Runways Half Marathon (or 5k or 1 Mile) on April 2, 2011 at the former Brunswick Naval Air Station. All 3 races take place completely on the air station property, and the 5k and 1 mile races never leave the landing strips and taxiways. All of the races finish inside of Hanger 5.
