Time adjustments are not issued for occurrences such as marshal failure. Inability to complete the course for any reason will result in a disqualification. Time limits are strictly enforced.

Course - All participants are expected to know the course and assume all responsibility for staying on the course. That being said, Run Waterloo puts a sign at every turn and uses well-trained marshals throughout the course as appropriate. 

Awards - Individual and team categories are final once the runner starts the race. Runners must cross the finish line to earn a finisher award. If not claimed at the event, award medals will be available at Runners' Choice starting on September 17.

Swag - Finisher awards (medals) are only for finishers of the half marathon. T-shirts must be claimed by the race start, otherwise they become property of Run Waterloo and will be distributed at the race to other interested participants.

Sport - This is a sporting event which involves inherent risk. The participant assumes the risk factors including but not limited to injury, training, and weather. 

Cancellation - If this race is cancelled due to extreme circumstances (extreme weather, tragedy, or community emergency), there will be no refund. The only guaranteed restitution is the option to pick up the race shirt from Runners' Choice at a specified time. In any potential cancellation situation, utmost care will be taken to make the decision as informed as possible, and also to give participants as much notice as possible. Run Waterloo has cancelled only one race in over 40 years of operations, although we do acknowledge that weather will continue to become more extreme.
