Inclement Weather

Rain may be in the forecast and though we're hoping to get some of that rain before race day to help clear the air, we're also hoping for it to be dry and pleasant the morning of the race. In any event, the run will be held rain or shine! In the event of any of the following, the race will be canceled: severe weather storms, severe lightning showers, flooding affects transportation, or the governor declares a weather emergency and asks people to stay off the roads.
