Severe Weather Policy

The safety of our athletes, spectators and volunteers is our primary concern. In the event of inclement weather, every attempt will be made to preserve the safety of everyone involved, and complete the race as scheduled.

In the event of rain the event will not be cancelled due to rain alone. Race officials reserve the right to delay or shorten the race based on heavy rain. In the event of severe weather (eg: lightning, tornado, high winds) the event may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a reasonable delay, or if conditions persist, race officials reserve the right to shorten or cancel the race. Participants should seek safe shelter should severe weather develop during the race.

Please check our website, Facebook Page, Athlinks Race Day App, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations. If you are already at the event, listen to the announcer about any weather changes that may occur. Entry fees will not be refunded in the event the race is cancelled. Entry fees will not be credited to future events. Thank you for your undersatnding.
