We expect our events to happen rain or shine. No one, including the Race Director, wants to make changes to an event on race day. However, the safety of our participants is of paramount concern. In the event of adverse weather conditions, the Race Director, may delay the event, cancel the event, or make changes to the race course. When weather conditions or other physical conditions that present a danger to participants, Utah Halloween 5k officials maintain the right to cancel the event. Less threatening conditions may cause alterations of the course or the post event festival- to ensure participant, volunteer, and community safety. Such conditions fall under the label “Acts of God,” and will not result in refunding of any race entry fees or future event credits.


The Utah Halloween 5k may be canceled or delayed if any of the following weather conditions exist: Tornado Warning, Tornado Watch, Thunderstorm, lightning, Heavy Rain, Snow, Sleet, other major weather condition—or a Zombie Apocalypse – you never know 🙂


If the event is canceled more than 12 hours before the event, we will notify participants via the race website, email and social media. If the event is canceled less than 12 hours before the event we will notify participants via the race website and social media. Any logistical communication will be provided through various methods.


This is a NO Refunds event. Refunds are not issued for events canceled for Adverse Weather Conditions as the funds for the event have already been spent in preparation for race day. We do understand that sometimes unforeseen injuries or other issues come up and therefore we will allow to transfer participants. Transfers must be completed 24 hours prior to the pre race expo to ensure accurate registration.
