There is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions (for example: extreme cold temperature, blizzard, snow emergency, etc...). We will do as much as we can to make the experience as safe as possible. However, if there is severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a reasonable delay, or if conditions persist, race officials reserve the right to shorten or cancel the race. Entry fees are non-refundable. Please check our website and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations. If you are already at the event, listen for announcements about any weather changes that may occur. In the event of a race cancelation, the Post Dash Bash will still go on and race shirts will be available for up to two weeks following the event at the JCC Front Desk.
