This blog post includes directions, information and tips for team captains on how to register a relay team for the 2020 People's United Bank Vermont City Marathon.
Relay Basics There are two types of relay teams - 2 Person 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 until May 17, 2020. After May 17 ALL team changes* must be made at the Sport & Fitness Expo on Friday, May 22 from 1:00pm – 8:00pm or Saturday, May 23 from 9:00am – 3:00pm. A $25 late-change fee will apply; proceeds from this fee will be donated to RunVermont Youth Running Programs.
*Team changes include adding/removing team members, adding/removing team captain, transferring your team or changing your team name.

Step 4 - Confirm Team Type and Choose Team NameOnce you choose ‘Create a New Relay Team’ we suggest that you confirm Relay Team Type* is indeed the type of team you want. Then enter your Relay Team Name. No two team names can be the same, so we suggest having a backup name ready. Click ‘Continue’.
*Relay Team Type shown in the screenshot below defaults to the selection you made in Step 2 above. For example, if you select 3-5 Person Relay, then the Relay Team Type will default to 3-5 Person Relay. If you select 2 Person Relay, then the Relay Team Type will default to 2 Person Relay.

Within a few minutes after registering your team you will receive two e-mails from RunSignUp.com. If you registered a team, but have not received confirmation email we recommend looking in your junk mailbox. Save these emails and remember your RunSignUp.com username and password. You will need them later.
