From the race director:
"Due to expected severe weather this Saturday the dogwood road race is cancelled. We are expecting heavy rain Thursday night continuing through Saturday. Temp at race time is forecast in the 30's. best case would be temp in the 30's with strong winds and wet roads. Add rain or snow, 70% chance for the worsening possibilities . With those conditions and the length of the course I feel we could be potentially putting racers at risk of exposure far from support. A scheduled race in Arkansas doesn't allow us to switch to Sunday when conditions are forecast to be much improved.I wanted to get this out as soon as possible to alert racers of the decision. Please forward this to your fellow racers. Sorry Curt Evenson"
