So the question I place forth here is, While engaged in a mass P.T. run that has started prior to Reveille, what is the proper action, ACCORDING TO REGULATION, when Reveille comences? Should everyone just stop the event and render Honors to the Colors disregarding the physiological stress of stopping during a cardiovascular event?This message has been edited.

Now let's add to this same run. It is a base fitness center sponsored 5k run. Also add that the base for whatever reason cannot seem to commence consistently at 0700 hrs with reveille, so the race is started anyway.
If they can't get the horn to blow they should raise the flag anyway. There have been plenty of times which I (with my unit) have saluted "thin air" in honor of the flag, not knowing if the flag on the other side of post had gone up or not.
Colorguard on Fort Gordon is required to be there 30minutes early to make sure that the schedule is met.
Common sense should be able to fix any situation...
