This blog post includes directions, information and tips for how to join a relay team for the 2019 People's United Bank Vermont City Marathon.
Relay Basics There are two types of relay teams - Half & Half Relay and 3-5 Relay Registration is first come first served. You don't need to know everyone on your team to register your team. Your team members register once you have purchased a team. All registration, team management and changes go through RunSignUp.com (see below). 3-5 person teams with less than 5 runners is accepted. Some runner(s) will need to run multiple legs exchanging at VCM designated exchange zones. No need to let us know who is running which leg - we don't track this information.
Mark your Calendar Changes can be made to relay teams online between Jan 21, 2019 and May 13, 2019. After May 13 ALL team changes* must be made at the Sport & Fitness EXPO on Friday, May 24 from 1:00pm – 8:00pm or Saturday, May 25 from 9:00am – 3:00pm. A $25 late-change fee will apply; proceeds from this fee will be donated.
*Team changes include adding/removing team members, adding/removing team captain, transferring your team or changing your team name.
Step by Step Directions
Step 1 - Go to the Registration Website
There are several ways to get to the registration website.
Click Here for the Vermont City Marathon Relay Register Page and click on the Register Here button. This link takes you to RunSignUp.com, the official registration website.
You may also receive an email from your Team Captain inviting you to join the team - follow the link in the email to RunSignUp.com.
Step 2 - Choose your Event
Choose between Half & Half Relay and 3-5 Person Relay, click ‘Continue’ and on the next screen Complete the Waiver.
If you are joining a team don't worry that there is a price showing for the event, even though your Team Captain has paid. The price will disappear once you join a specific team and proceed through the registration process. You will not be charged unless you are the Team Captain registering for the first time.
Step 3 - Join an Existing Relay Team
Once you click on Join an Existing Relay Team the selected box will be highlighted in red (see below in Step 4).
Step 4 - Find your Team
There are two ways to find your Relay Team - you can either select the relay team from the drop-down list, or enter the team name in the search bar.
Team names can be very similar so it’s a good idea to confirm the Team Name and Team Captain under ‘Relay Team Details.’ As the number of teams increases, it is faster to use the Search Relay Teams feature rather than the Select Relay Team feature.
Step 5 - Continue through the Registration Process
Follow the prompts and continue through registration. Within a few minutes after registering to join your team you will receive a confirmation email from RunSignUp.com. If you registered, but have not received confirmation email we recommend looking in your junk mailbox. You may also want to check in with your Team Captain and let them know you have joined the team and they can confirm by visiting your Team Page in RunSignUp.com.
Congrats on joining a Relay in the 2019 People's United Bank Vermont City Marathon!
