Many of you have been asking about the race day weather forecast and what it means for you. We’re currently monitoring the weather for Saturday and Sunday and remain cautiously optimistic about the forecast.
The event will go on rain or shine. We are monitoring closely for any lightning concerns as race day approaches and will keep runners apprised of status changes for any event. The safety and well-being of our participants, volunteers and spectators is the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon’s top priority.
The marathon works closely with our medical partner Prevea and our local public safety departments. We have contingency plans in place for weather-related delays and cancellations and have several touch points with the decision-making team throughout race weekend to make sure we can safely host our event. Runners and volunteers will be informed as soon as any decision related to the status of the event is made.
We will use emails for communication prior to race day. On race day please watch our website homepage, social media and listen for on-site announcements to stay up-to-date. On Sunday, you can also tune into local media partner 107.5 The Fan for announcements.
It is important for runners to pay attention to the Emergency Alert System. This color-coded flag system will advise runners of the event status at the while on the course. Stay alert at all medical stations and listen to instructions provided by volunteers, public safety and staff.
The Lambeau Field atrium will be open beginning at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday and the Main Street Parking Ramp will be open at 5:00 a.m. on Sunday to provide shelter if needed before the start of the races.
We look forward to seeing everyone this weekend!
