Weather

The race will be held rain or shine. If there is lightning in the area, the race will either have a delayed start (maximum 30 minute delay) or, depending on the intensity of the weather, be cancelled. The determination will be made by the Event Management staff and local law enforcement to determine the proper action. Legally, the race cannot take place while lightening is in the area for liability reasons.

As a reminder, the registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Lightning Policy

Event operations will shut down when lightning is 10 miles out from the event areas. Event operations will not resume until the lightning is 10 miles out moving away from the event areas. Event Management staff will determine this using the Flash to Bang Rule* and weather radar. The Event Management staff and local law enforcement will decide on a course of action to utilize the operational rain plan, delay the event, or cancel the event. Any action will not take place till race morning.

*Flash to Bang Rule* is applied by measuring the time (in seconds) between a visual lightning “Flash” and hearing the resulting “Bang”. This time is then divided by a factor of “5” to obtain distance in miles. For example, 50 seconds between “Flash” and “Bang” divided by “5” equals 10 miles.
