Inclement Weather Plan:
In case of rain and thunderstorms on race day (or significant rain or Acts of God prior to race day) we will enact the following safety measures, which will help keep our athletes safe.  Our goal is to do everything in our power to host a complete race.  We will delay or shorten the race course only if necessary.  Cancellation is our very last resort and will only be considered after all of the following measures have been reviewed.  

  • In the case of only rain or clear weather we will plan for an on-time start and complete race as planned.
  • In the case of only rain or clear weather but parts of the course are no longer safe we will adjust the course and plan for an on-time start.
  • In the case of lightening we will delay the race start to at least 30minutes after the last lightening strike.  We will not race on a course if lightening is present, but will continue the race when lightening ceases and has moved out of the immediate area up until 8:45AM.  We are only permitted until 10:00AM, so if we cannot safely start by 8:45AM the race will be cancelled.  
  • In the case of prolonged lightening and storms in the area, we may need to cancel the entire race.  
  • If inclement weather is predicted we may adjust the race course, race distances or eliminate segments of the race so to keep athletes safe and close to our race HQ. 
  • We do not provide refunds for cancelled races.  
  • Please refer to the waiver you signed at registration for more information.  


UPDATE:  Tuesday, May 15, 2018 - We will continue to monitor the weather the week and plan to make a determination on Friday.  An email will be sent out through a site wide broadcast as well as by your coaches and posted to our website.  Please be sure to check your emails, spam folders and website for this important update.
