Event Alert System (EAS) // Emergency Action System
The Mardi Gras Mambo utilizes a color-coded Event Alert System (EAS) for our races that communicates the status of course conditions on race day. The levels range from Low (green) to Moderate (yellow) to High (red) to Extreme (black) based on the weather, security measures and other course conditions. On race day, the current EAS status will be communicated via color-coded flags at the start and finish areas and along the course at each medical station.
All participants should familiarize themselves with the EAS prior to the race, remain alert for directions from race officials, and take precautions to prepare properly for varying weather or course conditions on race day. Signage explaining the EAS will be available at Packet Pickup and at the Race Venue.
Aid Stations & EMS
Aid stations contain portable toilet facilities, water, electrolyte drinks & energy gels. Local EMS units will also be providing medical support throughout the race courses.
