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.

Post-Race Party

After the race, join us for the Post-Race Party!  Call it your "Cool Down", your "Incentive", or just your "well deserved relaxation after finishing a great race", it doesn't matter your reason-- we just want you to come and have a great time!

Wear your leis on the course during the run, and keep them on while you dance to the beats of DJ Yeti.  Finishers will enjoy one (1) free Hawaiian Lemonade and goodies at the post-race party!
