The safety and well-being of everyone involved is our top priority, and Blue Nose Marathon will take all necessary precautions to avoid any potential risks. There may be situations such as, but not limited to, lighting, hurricane, state of emergency, and terrorist threat at the event location that may result in cancellation. Inclement weather, such as rain and/ or wind, do not constitute a cancellation.

If there are factors that may cause a cancellation, participants can expect the following with respect to notice. Please note, these timelines below assume a potential situation is known prior to the specified times referenced:

 

  • 72 hours prior to the event an update via email and social media
  • 48 hours prior to the event a second update via email and social media
  • 24 hours prior to the event a third update via email and social media
  • 3 hours prior to the start an update via email and social media
  • 3 business days post-event update via email and social media (applies to a cancellation situation)

 

In the unfortunate situation that Blue Nose Marathon needs to cancel one its races, all participants of that race will be moved to a virtual event. Participants can expect to receive an update within three business days of the event cancellation. In some instances, Blue Nose may be able to reschedule the race. If Blue Nose can reschedule a race, this will be communicated to participants in the notice immediately following the cancellation (3 business days post-event). Due to the complexity, logistics, and nature of some of our races, rescheduling is not usually possible.
