In the event of light to moderate rain, and the absence of any lightning, our goal is to proceed with the full triathlon event as long as road conditions are safe and will allow the bike and run portions to take place.
If there is lightning in the area, the event is placed into a weather hold and can be held for up to one hour. If the lightning has departed the area, the race can proceed as planned. If there is still evidence of the potential for lightning in the area, the race can be converted into a duathlon (run, bike, run) by canceling the swim portion of the event.
If the swim and bike courses are determined to be unsafe, but the run course is determined to be safe, the event can be modified into a run only event.
If after one hour of a weather hold all three portions of the event are determined to be unsafe, the event can be cancelled.
Due to the nature of multi-sport events taking place generally in the outdoors, weather conditions can play a large role in the production of the event. Because a significant amount of the funds collected during registration have been expended by the day of the event for the production of the event and because each event is uniquely scheduled for its date and location, registration refunds are not possible and rescheduling the event is not possible, and thus the no refund policy.
