Conditions Despite a reputation for big tailwinds, this race has yet to record a year with true gale force winds. The US government's National Weather Service defines a "gale" as a wind that maintains speeds between 17 and 24 meters per second (mps). How much tailwind is considered an unfair aid to performance? Records are disallowed in T&F when the tailwind is > 2 mps. No windy records are disallowed here though ... they are embraced as the good luck of the Irish.
