Runners and volunteers should be advised that race officials are monitoring the weather and will make every effort to advise if there is a weather hazard. If notified of a weather hazard, people should seek immediate shelter.
If a weather hazard occurs before the start of activities a delay may take place. If a weather hazard occurs after the start of the event cancelation may occur.
Safe Places A large permanent building or metal vehicle is best. If there's lightning and you are caught with nowhere to go, crouch in a low place with your feet on the ground and your hands over your ears to minimize the truly ear-splitting quality of lightning up close and personal. Don't sit or lie down; minimize your contact with the ground while trying to be as low as possible. Don't huddle; keep at least 15 feet between you and the next person.
Unsafe Places are near metal or water; under trees; on hills; near electrical/electronics equipment.
Do not continue to run or walk the course.
In the event of a delay, once the weather hazard has subsided, race officials will communicate the resumption of some or all activities depending upon the time available. In the event of a cancelation, results will be based on those runners, if any, who have finished at the time of the cancelation. In the event of a cancelation, once the weather hazard has subsided, race officials will drive the course to provide transportation back to the start for volunteers and participants.
