Event Alert System
For the safety of all participants, the Community First Fox Cities Marathon Presented by Miron Construction utilizes a color-coded Event Alert System to keep you informed about course conditions leading up to and during the full, half and relay marathon events. The system follows the American College of Sports Medicine color-coded flag system to convey the risk level for cold or heat/humidity stress, thunderstorms, high winds, or air quality concerns.
Colored flags will be posted at 20 water stations throughout the course as well as at the start and finish line, indicating the current alert level and posted on our website. In addition, prior to the event, anticipated course conditions will be shared in email communications and at the OSMS Health & Wellness Expo/Packet Pickup. All participants should familiarize themselves with the Event Alert System prior to the race, remain alert for directions from race officials, volunteers and announcers and take precautions to prepare properly for varying weather conditions on race day.
