USATF-NE Grand Prix Road Race Series – Public Safety / Weather Emergency Guidelines
Cancellations: A minimum of 24 hours’ notice must be given to the USATF-NE Office and LDR Chairs:
- If the race director of a scheduled Grand Prix Road Race cancels the race, it will be removed from the series. If the race is postponed and held at another time, it will not be included in the series or scored.
- If any state governor, public safety officer or other designated emergency personnel of a USATF-NE member state closes the roads, bans travel or otherwise prevents people from a wider geographic area to attend a scheduled Grand Prix Road Race, it will be deemed not a Grand Prix event and not scored even if the race location has no emergency status itself and the race is held.
Adjusting start time(s) to accommodate weather/safety situations: A minimum of 36 hours’ notice must be given to the USATF-NE Office and LDR Chairs if time is to be adjusted earlier than originally posted. Delays may be announced on the day of the event.
- A race director may adjust Grand Prix Road Race start time(s) for the race while keeping it on its scheduled date in the interest of safety and/or weather related situations. The race will be scored as a Grand Prix event.
