It is the hardest decision we have had to make but simply put the weather and race conditions are such that it is hazardous for runners and volunteers of all race distances to move forward with this years race. The City of Saskatoon has received 30-40 cm of wet snow causing wide spread power outages across the city and area through the night. Much of our course is set up by the City of Saskatoon who are now concerned with snow clearing and more.
We are saddened by having to make this decision with all of the time and effort that has gone into this years event. Please see our cancellation policy below.
The Saskatoon Police Run runs rain or shine, within the reasonable weather expectations for the middle of a Saskatchewan April.
“In the event that weather conditions are deemed by Saskatoon Police Run organizers to be potentially hazardous to participants and volunteers, the Saskatoon Police Run organizers reserve the right to briefly postpone or cancel the event outright. Cancellation of the event may take place either prior to the start of the event or at any time while the event is taking place.
A brief postponement and/or outright cancellation of the event may also take place for any other reason or situation wherein the Saskatoon Police Run organizers feel conditions may be potentially unsafe for participants and volunteers.
The decision of the Race Director is final. There will be no refunds or deferrals for weather cancellation or cancellation of the event for any reason.
In the event of cancellation for any reason – including but not limited to weather conditions – funds not required to cover race expenses will be donated to the Saskatoon Police Run designated charities.”
