The following are guidelines for how the MNMBS will conduct races in the event of challenging weather. Our primary consideration is the safety of racers, race support staff, race visitors, and potential damage to the site.
Any decisions regarding cancelling, postponing, or altering race start times, lap lengths, number of laps, etc. will be made jointly by the race promoter, a representative of the MNMBS, and the chief referee. Often, this decision cannot be made until the morning of the race due to the unpredictable nature of wet or stormy weather.
The MNMBS will make every attempt to notify the racing population via Twitter, Facebook, web site updates as soon as possible. You may sign up for Text / SMS updates, see the bottom of the page for instructions.
MNMBS will not refund pre-registration fees due to inclement weather. MNMBS does not allow registration transfers to subsequent races due to inclement weather.
Last season we used SMS/Text messages to communicate with racers when there were major changes or delays at our races. For 2018 we will again use this system and you SHOULD sign up again for notifications to ensure that you are still on the list. Please follow the link below to sign up.
We will only use this system to tell you if the race has had a change in the following:
For all other normal notifications you will want to check our Facebook or Twitter feed. We also send emails with the latest news and you can signup on the home page of our web site. If you choose to sign up for this we hope you will never get a text this year, because all of the races are going as planned.
