This Event Alert System is a standardized protocol used at events to ensure participants have a great experience and are prepared for race conditions. Race status signs will be placed near the Start and Finish Lines, plus shared on the event website and social media. This simple, standardized status is updated by race organizers in consultation with meteorologists and other officials.

Runners, volunteers, and supporters are encouraged to watch for event updates and plan accordingly.

Safety is a top priority. As a local non-profit, we are dedicated to delivering a safe and memorable experience for runners, spectators, and volunteers. Thank you as well to the City of Vancouver and Vancouver Parks Board for helping us plan ahead and mitigate potential risks.
