Triad GO FAR 5K & Fun Run

Sat November 17, 2018 High Point, NC US 27262 Directions
Inclement Weather Policy

GO FAR puts the safety of its participants, spectators, staff, and volunteers first. Dangerous weather conditions pose a unique challenge to an event the size of the Triad GO FAR Race. Therefore we have adopted the following Inclement Weather Policy:

Weather forecasts will be monitored prior to the event, with special attention placed on the possibility of ice, heavy rain, thunder and lightning, high winds, and extreme temperatures (hot or cold). If necessary, families and schools will be made aware of these conditions and possible dangers which could result. Announcements will be posted on the GO FAR website as well as through other means of communication such as Twitter and Facebook.

The Race Director and GO FAR Race Committee, in consultation with High Point law enforcement, Piedmont Triad Ambulance and Rescue, and other officials, will monitor the weather and make a decision if any action will be taken to modify the race. Possible changes include altering the start time or, in extreme situations, cancellation of the event.

Visible lightning will cause the race to be postponed for a minimum of 30 minutes. Additional sightings will continue to delay the race in 30-minute increments.

If ice is visible on the race route and is unavoidable, the race personnel, medical team, fire, and police personnel reserve the right to delay, cancel, or suspend the race due to inclement weather.

If extremely high heat and humidity is predicted, extra water will be provided to runners prior to, during, and after the event. The medical team will be alerted that athletes may require additional medical attention during and after the event due to these conditions. If it is felt that it is unsafe for participants to start the race due to severe temperatures and humidity, the race may be cancelled.

The GO FAR Family Event does not get cancelled due to rain.
NOTE: No refunds are given if race is cancelled. All proceeds benefit GO FAR Registration Scholarships and Lace Up Scholarships throughout the state.
