Emergency & Contingency Plan

Hops for Hope 5K is rain or shine event, unless we determine that race conditions are dangerous. This will be based on a decision made by Project Mobility staff and in consultation with local safety officials. Every effort will be made to conduct the race; if the race is cancelled there will be no refunds. Each runner/walker must accept any such risk for their entry fee paid including other amenities paid for such as t-shirts, food tickets, etc. In the event of inclement weather, Acts of God, human threat or unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to alter, cancel or eliminate any/all portions of the event. The following procedure will be followed:


  • The race director in consultation with local safety officials will make the final decision to delay, adjust or cancel the race.

  • The decision will be posted on the website and an email sent out (if prior to the event) and communicated at Mount Saint Mary Park via the PA announcing system along with volunteers informing participants that are near by (day of the event). 

In case we need to evacuate the event we ask you to do the following:

  • If your car is close and you prefer to get in your car and wait or leave please make your way to your car.

  • If your car is not close you can head to two designated areas, see below.
