***6:30am, June 11, 2021 – Savage Race Charlotte Weather Update
The current forecast shows a possibility of thunderstorms beginning in the early afternoon. We made the following modifications to the race day schedule in an effort to allow all participants to complete the course before the afternoon storms arrive.
– Anyone with a scheduled start time of 9:30am or later is permitted and encouraged to run up to 60 minutes earlier than their scheduled start time
– We added a 10:30am SavageJR start time for today’s event. We plan to hold both the 10:30am and 12:00pm starts for SavageJR. Parents and children signed up for SavageJR may choose either start time, weather permitting.
Will you suspend or cancel Savage Race due to rain, lightning, or thunder?
We will not suspend or delay Savage Race for rain only. If it’s raining, we are running. If it’s lightning or thunder, we are waiting until the storm clears the area for 30 minutes before opening/reopening.
What should I do if I’m on the course and lightning or thunder strikes?
Please head immediately to the safety of your car, and check this page for updates. We will make every effort to re-open the course back up after the lightning clears.
If the race is stopped, will I be able to run after the weather clears?
We will make every effort to allow you to run after the weather clears. In the event of a foul weather postponement, status updates will be posted to this page.
What if I can’t wait around for the weather to clear?
If the weather forces us into a prolonged holding pattern, and you cannot wait onsite until the weather clears, we will offer free transfers to any future event. All you will have to do is write in to us during the week after your planned event. We do not offer refunds due to weather related cancellations or postponements.
