To make the 2017 Rocket City Marathon a top race, we need lots of Spirit Teams to cheer on the runners. Anyone can form a spirit team — family and friends of runners, businesses, youth groups, bands, cheer and dance squads and other groups are welcome. Our goal is to have at least one spirit team per mile to make this a great race that attracts runners from all over the country. You must be registered to be eligible for the Spirit Team prize money. We will try and honor requests for specific locations for returning Spirit Teams. Spirit Teams will be responsible for recruiting cheer volunteers, making signs or other motivational materials, providing music or snacks if interested, and cleaning up your designated area after the race. Spirit Teams will be eligible for cash prizes totaling $500.
Spirit Teams who are 501©3 with at least 10 participants will also receive $100 for their organization.
Prize money for Spirit Teams is as follows:
1st place- $250 2nd place- $150 3rd place – $50 4th place- $50
