Time: 8:00 AM
Location: McCollum Park
The health and safety of our participants, staff, volunteers and sponsors is of the highest importance. The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning through Saturday evening. This “dangerous zone” of heat and humidity will not provide safe conditions for participants -- no matter what precautions might be taken. Therefore, for the safety of all participants, the BBQ Bolt is being rescheduled.
