⭐26.2 RELAY REGISTRATION⭐

1) Choose a team leader to register first and create a team in RunSignUp. Team leaders will pay the FULL relay registration price and are responsible for collecting from other members if they choose. Team leaders will receive a confirmation email including a registration link to forward to team members.

2) Once the RunSignUp team is created by the leader, the other teammates can begin to register. While registering, choose your team name and enter the optional password (set by team leader). This will register you to the team and bring your total to $0.00 at checkout. 

3) Teammates are responsible for choosing which relay leg they prefer to run. It is possible to have a team of less than 4. If you have 2 or 3 team members, someone will be responsible for running more than one relay leg.

Race Time Cut Offs: 6:30:00 for 26.2 and Relay and 3:30:00 for 13.1

 

UPDATE AS OF 9/21/20:

The Cumming Marathon is scheduled to take place on November 8, 2020. This inaugural event includes a marathon, a half marathon, and an option to partake in the marathon as a member of a relay team (up to four participants). We will also offer a 5k on November 7, 2020.


For the safety and health of our staff and runners, we are making adjustments to our typical operational procedures. We will be implementing multiple strategies to limit the interaction between participants, volunteers and organizers. Under the current local and state guidelines, we feel we can safely accommodate a limited number of runners for each event.


A few of the changes we are making include:
 ✅Multiple packet pick up options/locations.
 ✅Limiting the number of participants for each event. Once each event is full, additional registrations will not be accepted.
 ✅Marathon will be limited to 300 in-person participants.
 ✅Half Marathon will be limited to 300 in-person participants.
 ✅5k will be limited to 300 in-person participants.
 ✅Awards will not be given out at the event.
 ✅Staggered start times for each event. Small groups of runners will leave the starting line at designated intervals.
 ✅Chipped timing will be in use - your time does not start until you cross the start line!


A virtual option will be available for each event. Registered runners can switch their registration to the virtual option up until two weeks prior to race day.


Our start/finish location is at the Cumming Fairgrounds. This large, open space allows for increased social distancing for runners, staff, and volunteers.


The course route, which is mostly on the roadways of Cumming, also allows runners the opportunity to leave space between their fellow runners.


We will continue to explore options and make adjustments to our pre-race and race day procedures to meet guidelines set forth by the state of Georgia and the CDC.
