NYRR has implemented a color-coded Event Alert System (EAS) for our races that will communicate the status of course conditions on race day. The levels range from Low (green) to Moderate (yellow) to High (red) to Extreme (black) based on the weather and other course conditions. On race day, the current EAS status will be communicated via color-coded flags at the start and finish areas and along the course at each medical station.
All participants should familiarize themselves with the EAS prior to the race, remain alert for directions from race officials, and take precautions to prepare properly for varying weather or course conditions on race day.
|Alert Level||Event Conditions||Recommended Actions|
|Extreme||Event Cancelled/Extreme and Dangerous||Participation stopped / Follow event official instruction|
|High||Potentially Dangerous||Slow down / Observe course changes / Follow event official instruction / Consider Stopping|
|Moderate||Less than ideal||Slow Down / Be prepared for worsening conditions|
|Low||Good||Enjoy the event / Be alert|
