At AccuWeather, there should be decent weather for the race. The high for the day is 64 with a low of 48. The weather description is “mainly cloudy” and there is a 5% chance of rain. While it could be chilly to start, the wind shouldn’t be a factor as gusts are expected only up to 5 mph.
There is no prize money. In fact, this is the largest marathon that doesn’t offer any prize money.
