What happens if there is inclement weather?

The race will use a color coded event alert system.  If dangerous weather conditions exist, the race will be stopped.  Due to the nature of this fundraising event, refunds are not offered for cancelled events or events shortened by safety conditions.   

 

Event Alert System

A color-coded Event Alert System (EAS) will communicate the status of course conditions to participants leading up to and on race day. The levels range from Low (green) to Moderate (yellow) to High (red) to Extreme (black) based primarily on the weather, as well as other conditions.

  • Email and website communication during race week will inform participants of the current Event Alert System status and provide preparation tips based on advance weather forecasts.
  • Updates will be available at t-shirt pickup on Saturday, October 15.
  • On race day, the current Event Alert System status will be communicated via public address announcements if there is any change from GREEN status

All participants should familiarize themselves with the Event Alert System prior to the race, remain alert for directions from race officials and announcers and take precautions to prepare properly for varying weather conditions on race day.
