There will be a RED medical tent located at the finish line in case of emergency or any medical needs. Announcements can always be made at the DJ booth as well.

Weather Policy
Races are held, rain or shine, unless Sisu Events & Run Events determines that conditions are too dangerous. This will be based on a prudent decision made on race weekend or race day by Sisu Events/Run Events and local law enforcement officials. If the race is canceled due to inclement weather there will be neither refunds nor transfers. This position is consistent with USA Track & Field recommendations and with the protocol of sharing the risks associated with the sport of running. In the event of inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances, Sisu Events & Run Events reserve the right to alter, cancel or eliminate any/all portions of the race.
