The Event Alert System is a standardized communication protocol used in large events across North America to ensure participants have a great experience and are prepared for race conditions. It will allow the Society, as the race organizer for the Fall Classic, to communicate race conditions in a standardized and simple manner. To update race status, signage will be placed at the Fall Classic Expo, at the Start and Finish Lines, as well as information will be posted on the event website and social media pages. The status will be updated by race organizers in consultation with local meteorologists and other officials.

For the best experience, preparation is key. Runners, volunteers, and other supporters are encouraged to watch for updates on event conditions and plan accordingly.
