    Define a Clydsdale

    I am a newbie and I am considering entering a few races. I suspect I am a Clydsdale but I haven't been able to find a weight or really any information on this class. I am at 190 now (down from 250 6 months ago, big cheer!) and plan on maintaining this weight. Any help is appreciated.

    The clydsdale class has been defined, in the races that I've run, as 200lbs and over. Perhaps all races do not define this class the same??? However, you may very well have worked yourself out of this class!

    Thanks BAC, I wasn't sure but I do know I am not putting 10 lbs on to make the class.

    Usually 200 lb's and up. I'm right there too, and I've even considered eating an extra cheeseburger before a race to make it into that class. It's usually a surprisingly fast class though, not an easy race as one might think. You will find an occasional race that sets the clydesdales at 190 lb's.
