Inclement weather plan – Safety for our participants, volunteers, and staff is our number #1 concern. Any decision we make regarding the production or cancellation of the event will be made with their interest first and foremost. If mother nature does not cooperate on race morning – we will delay the event until the conditions are safe – this delay will continue for a reasonable amount of time until we deem it necessary to cancel the event.
