Its Southern Ohio and what can I say about the can be anything!! Last year we held this event as a Fat Ass style and we had unseasonable warm temps at almost 70 degrees with heavy rains the day before and showers on and off during the race which caused lots of fun mud on the course!! Typical weather in December in Portsmouth is mid 40's
