Note: 39th Groundhog Gallop will NOT be cancelled due to inclement weather. All reasonable attempts will be made to clear the course of snow, but there is a segment of the course that is hard to clear of built up ice. This is a winter race, please be mindful of course conditions and adjust your pace accordingly. Don't worry, it's always fun!
