Indoor track assessments will only be conducted if there is inclement weather as defined in AFI 36-2905.

· Cold Stress: air temperature must be greater than or equal to 20 degrees with wind less than or equal to 15 mph sustained, or less than or equal to 20 mph gusting.
· No snow accumulation on the running surface.
· No ice on the running surface that cannot be easily observed and avoided.
· No standing water that a large group cannot easily avoid on the running surface.
· No mud on the running surface that cannot be easily avoided.
· No significant rain. If assessing on a wet day, to include rain, mist or heavy dew, the temperature must be greater than 34 degrees including wind chill.

The winter fitness assessment schedule will end April 1, 2014.
