We can't control the weather but unfortunately we know that racism and sexism exist rain or shine. Because of our mission, we will walk and run rain or shine. If there are unsafe conditions, we will provide updates for all participants on the main page of the Dash and Bash website A little rain won't stop us but unsafe conditions will put us on hold.
