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 by Step
Step 1 - Go 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.
Step 2 - Choose Your Event
Choose between 2 Person Relay and 3-5 Person Relay, click ‘Continue’ and on the next screen Complete the Waiver
Step 3 - Create a New Relay Team
Once you click on Create a New Relay Team the selected box will be highlighted in red (see below in Step 4).
Step 4 - Confirm Team Type and Choose Team Name
Once 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.
Step 5 - Continue Through the Registration Process
Follow the prompts and continue through registration. You don't need to know everyone on your team to register. Your team members register once you have purchased a team.
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.
Step 6 - Get your Team Members to Join your Team
Once you have secured your team there are two ways to fill your team. You can invite team members to register themselves or register team members yourself (but you'll need all their info to do it yourself).
