A NIP in the air may put a spring in the step of participants at tomorrow’s Run Ballarat.
Weatherzone meteorologist Max Gonzalez said it would be about six degrees when the first race kicked off at 7.40am but the day would gradually warm to a maximum of 16.
He said rain showers were forecast but they would be isolated and very light.
No more than 5mm of rain was expected for the whole day, he said.
“We’re seeing a possible cold front through Victoria overnight on Saturday,” Mr Gonzalez said.
“It’s going to be a little bit wet and it’s going to be cool. It’s not going to be windy.”
Mr Gonzalez said thanks to daylight saving, the sun would rise only shortly before the first race of the day.
But runners will have plenty of opportunities to warm up, before and during the events.
Aerobics instructors will even be in the marshalling area to take runners through a warm-up before the start.
