DELAYS & CANCELLATIONS

If weather conditions present a danger to participants, Race officials maintain the right to cancel or delay the event. Examples that could alter the event: tornado warning, tornado watch, or thunderstorm. Less threatening conditions may cause alterations of the event or the post event awards to ensure participant, volunteer, and community safety. 

Such conditions will not result in refunding of any race fees or future credit since funds were already spent in preparation for the race day. 

If the event is cancelled, runners will receive an email on how they can pick up their race packet.
