Safety and Alert System
Medical teams and an ALS Unit will be stationed at the finish line. EMT bike teams will also rove the course. If you are in need of medical assistance, either dial 911 on a mobile phone or inform the closest volunteer to obtain medical for you.
Officers will be located at all intersections where traffic intersects the course, in addition to patrolling the course.
Safety is of the utmost importance to the organizers of the Hotlanta Half Marathon. As with all of our events, we will be tracking the weather in the weeks and days leading up to the race. Please keep in mind that this event has a no refund policy and this includes if the race is cancelled due to an “act of God”. All race related items have already been paid for by the race production team.
EVENT ALERT SYSTEM
A color-coded Event Alert System (EAS) will be used to communicate the status of course conditions to participants leading up to and on race day. The levels range from Low (green) to Moderate (yellow) to High (red) to Extreme (black) based primarily on the weather, as well as other conditions.
Race Officials will communicate EAS conditions through E-mails, Facebook, and website throughout the week leading up to the race.
On race day, colored-coded EAS flags/signs will be used at the Start and at water stations along the course.
All participants should familiarize themselves with the Event Alert System prior to the race, remain alert for directions from race officials and announcers and take precautions to prepare properly for varying weather conditions on race day.
