Weather Cancellation


The Rival Run™ is a “Rain or Shine” event. This means that whether it is 100 degrees outside or if it is pouring rain – we’ll be there. Still – the safety of our participants is our top priority and extreme weather could create a circumstance where it may be necessary to cancel the event.

In circumstances of Tornado, Tornado Warning, Tornado Watch, Flash Flood, or Heavy Lightening or Thunderstorm – the Event Director will coordinate with city and local authorities to monitor the weather and determine how to proceed.

Pushing forward or delay of the Event Start

On event day as the weather circumstances become more clear the Event Director may decide to move the event to an EARLIER start time than the one listed by up to one hour. Based upon weather information the start time may also be delayed. In these circumstances if the the weather conditions continue with Tornado, Thunderstorm or similar extreme circumstances the event may be cancelled.

Authority to Cancel

The Event Director has the authority – working in collaboration with local authorities to cancel the event. In the event of a cancellation of the event due to extreme weather conditions no refunds can be provided – since funds were spent in preparation for the event.

If an event is cancelled we will email all participants with instructions on how you can receive your participant swag!

Notice / Broadcast of Cancellation

If we have to cancel an event more than 24 hours prior to the start time, we will notify all participants via email.

If cancellation occurs less than 24 hours before the start time, we will notify all participants via email. We’ll also send a text to all participants who gave us permission to send them text messages during the registration process.

If the event is cancelled during the actual event we will notify all onsite participants of the cancellation and send emails after the cancellation explaining the circumstances leading up to the cancellation.
