Severe Weather Policy

Share |

Our goal is to ensure the safety of every event participant and volunteer. In the occasion of severe weather, decisions to delay, relocate or cancel events will be made in consultation with local event jurisdictions, law enforcement, the Race Director and other officials. Weather forecasts will be monitored prior to the event, with special attention placed on the possibility of hail, thunder and lightening. Free to Breathe event personnel reserve the right to delay, relocate or cancel an event due to inclement weather.

Please review your event's web page for any location specific restrictions or details. 

Decisions to delay, relocate or cancel an event could take place the day of the event, and updates of these decisions will be posted on the Free to Breathe website.  We will also make every effort to also notify participants through other means of communication such as e-mail and Facebook. (Please note: Free to Breathe phone lines are not staffed on weekends between 5 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. Monday.)

Event Delay

An event could be delayed for up to 90 minutes after the scheduled opening rally start time, if the weather forecast predicts conditions will improve.

Event Relocation

An event could be relocated to a nearby enclosed space if the weather forecast predicts severe weather to continue beyond 90 minutes from the scheduled opening rally start time. A relocated event would consist of a rally, t-shirt pick-up and donation collection area but would not include the originally scheduled 5K or Walk.

Cancelations

An event could be canceled:

  • If the weather forecast predicts severe weather to continue beyond 90 minutes from the scheduled opening rally start time.
  • If, during or after a 90-minute delay, severe weather becomes imminent.
  • If the location of the event is deemed unsafe due to the effects of severe weather and there is no available enclosed space nearby.

In the case of a canceled event, a t-shirt pick-up and donation collection date/location will be scheduled within 1 month of the event date where participants can pick-up their event t-shirts.

Additional Details

  • All registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
  • Canceled events will not be re-scheduled.
  • In the occasion an event proceeds during inclement weather, please dress accordingly. All participants travel to the event and participate at their own risk.
