Weather Related Concerns:
The sport of Cross Country is run in all weather conditions and our first and utmost concern is for the welfare and safety of our young athletes and their families.

The meet will be contested on the scheduled date and there will be no make up dates.  All divisions will be competed unless Meet Management and IATC Executive Board determine the weather conditions cause a safety concern for the athletes, coaches, parents and fans.  If the event is cancelled by Meet Management and IATC Executive Board there will be no refunds of entry fees.

If the meet is in progress and the weather turns severe, (damaging winds, thunder and lightning) the meet will be stopped.  The athletes and their families will be asked to seek shelter.  Following the passing of the severe weather and the course is deemed safe for competition, the meet will continue.
