Description

The 26x1 Relay Invitational is back and will be taking place on Saturday, June 25th at 8:30am in Medford at the Hormel Track. This year, we have expanded the field in order to invite back all teams that participated in 2019 + 2021. A captain for each of those teams will receive an automated email from RunSignUp, which is your reserved team entry for the 26x1 Relay Invitational.

Your team's relay spot is reserved; once you receive the email from RunSignUp, please register your team in order to secure your team's spot. If you have any questions or have not received the automated email by Monday, May 2nd, please let Brian + Brendan know (BCullinan@gmail.com & BrendanJKearney@gmail.com), & we can confirm who was the listed contact from the club, or re-send the invitation to a different contact. (We will post a message along these lines on the 26x1 Facebook Page.) Please note: whoever creates the team will be responsible for maintaining the roster and submitting team results. You will be able to add additional admins.

Since we have expanded the field this year, we do not plan to add any more teams. Additional entries, either for new clubs or more teams for existing clubs will only be granted should other invitations not be accepted due to capacity constraints. If you would like to add your club to the existing wait-list for an additional spot, please email BCullinan@gmail.com & BrendanJKearney@gmail.com

Team Payment:
The entry fee is the same as 2019 + 2021, $375/team plus processing fee. We would prefer that you pay through RunSignUp.

However, if your team would prefer to pay by check, once you've confirmed your check has been mailed, we can share a custom coupon code for your team so you can register. We will not be accepting checks on race day. Checks should be made out to Somerville Road Runners and sent to: 

Somerville Road Runners
PO Box 442048
West Somerville, MA 02144-0018

A reminder of how we did team & individual sign ups in 2019 + 2021: 
After the team relay registration window has closed, RunSignUp will allow you to manage your team with a dedicated URL - as your club members register, you'll be able to see who has (and hasn't yet!) signed up, and share a link with your teammates to have them join your team directly. So once you create the team, hold off on sending it out to your teammates until next week! 

(You'll still submit the race order in the week before the event, via an excel file with name, age and sex so that each runner can be assigned the correct scoring group in results: you'll fill it out, rename the file with your club's name, and email it back.)

2021 Rule Change:
Previously, teams were required to have no less than 10 legs run by female runners. Going forward teams shall be comprised of 13 individuals identifying as male and 13  individuals identifying as female, with the following caveats: 1) Acknowledging that organizing large groups is difficult, we will allow a variance of 1 (ex: 14F-12M will be allowed) so long as it is done in good faith and not to seek a competitive advantage 2) Accommodations will be made for teams with non-binary athletes, please just let the race committee know 3) Teams unable to comply should still participate.  All individuals on non-compliant teams will be eligible to individual awards, but teams will not be eligible for team awards (all female teams who have participated prior to 2021 are exempt from this rule).

Thank you for all your efforts!

REGISTRATION DETAILS:

    • If you are a captain and you received an invitational notice from RunSignUp, create a club by clicking "Create a New Club" when you are registering. 

    • If you are running as part of a club/team: click the button "Join an Existing Club" and choose your club from the dropdown. 

    • If you are running as part of a team that took part in 2019 or 2021 and your team is not yet listed, contact your captain who registered the team on RunSignUp. Please note: whoever creates the team will be responsible for maintaining the roster and submitting team results. Additional entries, either for new teams or more teams for existing running clubs will only be granted should other invitations not be accepted due to capacity constraints. If you would like to add your club/team to the existing wait-list for an additional spot, please email BCullinan@gmail.com & BrendanJKearney@gmail.com
