Weather Policy

During Team Ortho events there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions (for example: lightning, tornado, high winds, extreme hot or cold temperatures, blizzard, etc...). Team Ortho Foundation will do as much as we can to make the experience as safe as possible.  But if there is severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers.  If there is more than a reasonable delay, or if conditions persist, race officials reserve the right  to shorten or cancel the race.  Entry fees are non-refundable.  Please check the website and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.  If you  are already at the event, listen to the announcer about any weather changes that may occur.

Pace Team

There will be a pace team for the Get Lucky Half Marathon. 

Pace teams help you on pace to reach the finish line in time to reach your goal!  

How do you find your pacer?  On race day there will be pace flags lining the start corral.  Go to the flag indicating your minute-per-mile pace and your pacer (holding their pace signs) will be there at least 15 minutes before the start of the race.
