Visibility & Weather Policy

Runner Safety is our Main Priority

We run in all weather and light conditions, and we are proud of it!  That said, safety is always number one in our book and we want you to be informed.  If you are participating in any of our Training Programs in any way please educate yourself on all of our safety and weather policies below.
 

Always be sure to check our Facebook page and group emails for the most current weather related updates regarding training programs, but in general these are our weather policies:

Visibility Policy

During much of the fall, winter, and early spring we host training runs and walks in low-light conditions.  It is absolutely mandatory that every runner and walker wear some type of reflective accessory or apparel item AND some type of light. Part of being a responsible and self sufficient runner or walker is having the correct gear to keep you safe in all visibility conditions.  We consider that correct gear to be BOTH reflectivity and lighting.  Your safety is always our number one priority.

Cold Weather Policy

We will cancel group training sessions if the following weather related dangers are present:

  • If extreme cold and/or wind
  • If actual temperature is 0 degrees Fahrenheit or below
  • If windchill temperate below 0 degrees Fahrenheit
  • If thunderstorms with lightning present
  • If ice storms, hail storms, blizzards,  extremely low visibility

We will NOT cancel group training sessions if it is simply raining or snowing under typical seasonal conditions.  You never know what you will get on race day, so let's be prepared for anything!

Hot Weather Policy

We will cancel group training sessions if the following weather related dangers are present:

  • If extreme heat - heat index in excess of 100
  • If thunderstorms with lightning present
  • If high winds or tornado warnings
  • If hail storms, dust storms, extremely low visibility

We will Not cancel group training sessions if it is simply raining under typical seasonal conditions.  You never know what you will get on race day, so let's be prepared for anything!

Wait & See Policy

We will post a "Wait & See " status on facebook when bad weather is forecasted but not certain (i.e. afternoon thunderstorms) Please understand that under this status we will still host the group training session but it may be canceled at anytime during or approaching the session if the weather worsens.  We respect everyones ability to plan their days, so we will try to use this policy as little as possible.
