Event Alert System

Event Alert System (EAS)

The color-coded Event Alert System (EAS) will communicate the status of course conditions leading up to and on race day. EAS levels range from Low (Green) to Moderate (Yellow) to High (Red) to Extreme (Black) based on weather and other conditions. 

Email, website and social media during race week will inform participants of the current EAS status and provide preparation tips based on advanced weather forecasts. Updates will be posted at the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo via color-coded signs or you can visit the information booth.
 
Familiarize yourself with the EAS prior to race day; remain alert for directions from race officials, announcers and volunteers; and take precautions to prepare properly for varying weather conditions on race day.
 
Please make sure that we have your most up-to-date emergency contact information by filling out the back of your race number prior to entering the start corral.
