RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Serious runners are always looking for a “Goldilocks” forecast.

When it’s too warm, you burn energy trying to cool off. It’s hard to get your personal best in a distance race if it’s warm/hot. That’s one of the reasons the Richmond Marathon is in November.

Our typical highs are in the low 60s and our typical lows are near 40°.

Our latest forecast has temperatures starting in the low 40s and climbing into the low 60s by Saturday afternoon.

Winds start light during the early morning then look to pick up out of the west to 10-15mph during the mid to late morning hours with gusts to 20mph. Be ready for the breeze! If you are a spectator or volunteer make sure to bring a jacket!

Good luck!
