Weather/Emergency Policy

GOTR 5k weather planning and procedure for May 10, 2014.

Girls on the Run Greater Cincinnati holds the safety of our participants as a top priority. We are aware of the potential for inclement weather and are doing everything we can to be prepared for such situation. We have created a clear policy and system to keep all race day participants and spectators prepared and informed if such a situation arises.

  1. The GOTR race director, executive director, and present board members will be meeting frequently throughout the morning to monitor present and approaching weather via office of National Weather Service.
  2. If there is a threat and/or we are experiencing thunder, lightning, or thunderstorms at 9:45 the race will be postponed until 10:30 to allow the threat to pass.
  3. Should the threat remain at 10:30 the GOTR 5k will be cancelled. Unfortunately, there will be no refunds due to weather situations. Look for a post-race communication regarding receiving your race t-shirt and medal.
  4. We will not begin the race if there is a chance for severe weather during the event. We will make this decision on the side of caution. The safety of the girls, participants, and spectators is far more valuable than the risk of having 4,000+ people stuck outdoors in a dangerous weather situation.

If there is a weather threat while in the staging area:

  1. All attendees should seek cover by registration on the Plaza Level of Paul Brown Stadium.
  2. Await further instruction.

If there is a weather threat while out on the race course:

  1. Should a weather threat (lightning or thunder) occur while participants are on the course, both spectators and participants should immediately seek nearby and safe shelter- a building or vehicle. Avoid metal, power lines and trees. Please wait 30 minutes from last observed lightning or thunder before leaving your safe shelter location.
  2.  All 9 cheer zones and 2 water stops will have a lead contact in direct communication with our race director to receive updates on any unexpected weather changes while participants are along the course. Seek their shelter location suggestion as needed for above mentioned weather threats.
  3. After the weather threat has passed please return to your team clipboard by most direct route (either proceeding forward or turning around) and let your coach(es) know you have returned. They will be waiting to hear from each girl on their team to make sure they have safely returned from the course.


Coaches and families: We ask and highly encourage you to distribute 1 coach phone # to each family so if they are not able to return to the team clipboard before leaving they can notify you. The ‘I finished a 5k’ check box on the clipboard will function instead as ‘I have safely returned from the race course’.
