Severe Weather Plan

Weather forecasts are tracked before the race for heavy rain, thunder and lightning, high winds and extreme heat. If there is a possibility of threatening weather, information will be posted on the Cheshire Half Marathon web site so that runners can prepare for severe weather during the race as well as possible course changes.

On race day, the Medical Staff and the Race Committee will decide if any changes will be made to the race. The race start time can change, the race can be postponed or the event can be cancelled. No Refunds will be given if the event is cancelled due to severe weather. Water, fog and high winds may cause the course(s) to be changed or shortened.

Visible lightning will cause the race to be delayed until lightning stops.
