Weather Policy

When hazardous weather is present or probable during a Run Fit program or event, Run Fit  (when possible) will communicate related announcements through email and via social media channels (FaceBook). 

Run Fit will begin making announcements at least 60 minutes prior to the start of a program or event if there appears to be a potential for changes. 

Participants are encouraged to consider their individual situations when choosing whether to participate when there is the potential for hazardous weather, even when Run Fit has chosen to proceed, or notice is not given.

Given the nature of Central Ohio weather, not all conditions are foreseeable, and program and event coordinators may be forced to make changes on-site at programs and events. Please keep in mind that safety will be the primary focus of all weather-related decisions and all decisions by event coordinators, club volunteers and coaches are final.

All risk is assumed by the participant at all times even when the event has not been called off. 

Run Fit's evaluation will weigh present conditions as well as probable conditions that could be present during and immediately after a program/event.

Examples of hazardous weather that could result in cancellation or delay include, but are not limited to:

* Lightning strikes within 6 miles or visible. 

* High heat or humidity

* Snow accumulation greater than 4 inches over a 12 hour period or if trail conditions warrant cancellation. Note: It is not always possible to check out trail conditions in advance.

* Icy conditions

* Severe cold of below zero degrees (with wind chill) on weather.com

* Tornado watch or warning

* Flooding /flash flood warnings

* Extreme winds
