Cold start, mild finish. That is what it’s come down to for the forecast tomorrow morning. Temperatures will be in the low 30s for the start and move into the 40s by 9am. I have trended temperatures down a bit for the 10 o’clock hour as they should only be in the upper 40s instead of lower 50s. This means I think it will be a little easier to narrow down your clothing choice. Highs should reach the mid 60s by the afternoon.

Recommendations:

With lows in the lower 30s and temperatures by the end only approaching the 50 degree mark, I think tights will be good for this race. You should go with a long sleeve shirt to start but have a t-shirt handy for the end of the race if you’re in the marathon. Full sunshine will make it warmer than it really is, but with breezy winds by the late morning, it may feel cooler. Basically, it’s one of those times when you should be prepared either way. Good luck and have fun out there. I loved this race as it was my first marathon!
