Registration Update for Pettit Center Event

Just 16 spots remain for the Gold Medal Challenge and 34 for the Marathon. Plenty left for the Half Marathon, Marathon Relay and 5k.

Are there no medals for the Marathon Relay? It has a higher registration fees than a regular Marathon - and the Marathon gives you a Medal so the Marathon Relay should as well. In case you don't want to give a medal to every person in the team, at least a medal per team is surely justified.

When running this marathon, do runners who are going slower generally move to an outer lane or do faster runners run around them. I was watching some videos online of the marathon and it looked as though some of the slower runners were giving the faster runners the inside lane. Just wondering if you have any rules/suggestions to runners one way or another.

No, there are not medals for the marathon relay. To be able to do that, we would have to increase the price more than what people would want to pay, or give out cheap medals.

We ask that the slower runners stay in the outside lane and let the faster runners use the inside lane. We have not had any issues with this during the first three years.
