The Atlantic City Marathon Race Series events are held rain or shine. In the event of any weather situation including but not limited to hurricanes, extreme lightning storms, or any weather that results in an evacuation of the Atlantic City area the race will either have a delayed start or, depending on the intensity of the weather and decisions of local municipal governments, be cancelled. The determination will be made by the event management staff and local officials.
The staging of a race of this magnitude results in substantial expense prior to the actual race itself. Thus, in the event of a forced cancellation of the event, it is very likely that the financial impact on the race would not be any different than if the race was held without compromise.
If there are changes to the event schedule or cancellation due to a weather related event, all participants will be notified via email and updates will be posted on the event website as well as social media pages.
By registering for this event you understand that all registration fees are non-refundable and we reserve the right to cancel the event specifically, when weather or other physical conditions present a danger to participants as a whole.
