2020 NOVO NORDISK NEW JERSEY MARATHON UPDATE

**Updated September 9, 2020**

The unfortunate Cancel announcement for the In-Person 2020 NJM events was direct emailed to all registrants on August 15.  Additionally messages were posted on the main NJM web pages and on social media sites for how to indicate an option choice from the offered alternatives.  The deadline for logging an option choice was midnight September 8.  

If you marked your choice in the NJM Virtual 'race' form, that will have filled in the response log - and we are now in the steps of crunching down that response log, manually updating all entries, getting retail credits, defers, and Virtual race entries set.  The intent is to have all updates in place by approximately September 15.   No-replies to the option process are automatically registered in the November 2020 Virtual NJM race events. 

You are able to check your RunSignUp profile at any time to confirm your NJM entry status.   RunSignUp  

*  Virtual NJM November registrants will be able to find profile records for both the original and virtual NJM race listings.  The original Main race will show a switch to the Virtual event.  The Virtual race will show an active status entry for the original purchased  NJM distance.  Retail credit $20 instructions will come via direct email, and in winter 2020 when the 2021 NJM registration process opens, the $20 entry discount for the 2021 race will also be emailed.  

* Deferred 2020 registrants will be able to find profile records for both the original Main and Virtual NJM race listings in their profile, and not in the race listings "Find a Participant" tool search.  For the Novo Nordisk New Jersey Marathon & Half Marathon, the current "date" of the 2020 NJM races is displayed as November 14-15.   A status of "Deferred" of that November roster entry means to the next year- April 2021.  In winter 2020 when the 2021 NJM registration process opens, all defer status registrants will receive instructions on how to redeem that defer and be set for racing down the shore in 2021.  (Event distance switches for 2021 can be made at that time of registration.) 

*  Retail Credit registrants will be able to find profile records for both the original Main and virtual NJM race listings.  Both will show a switch to the Retail Credit 'event'.  Credit values are unique to each registrant's original entry purchase.  Those amounts are being crunched with the plan to have custom credit codes distributed via direct email by September 15.

NJM TEAMS

The NJM offers social team opportunities:

SOCIAL COED TEAM:  For Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K runners, there is a SOCIAL COED TEAM opportunity (non-competitive) to join with family, friends, and co-workers to motivate and inspire each other to the finish line.  If you are the first to register, you will become the Captain and create the team name.  Provide that team name to your teammates and direct them to use the Join a Team choice.  Captains can review the RunSignUp help screens to learn how to use the great team admin tools, including invite a runner, check the roster, etc.

Please note, Sunday events are point-to-point.  Transportation opportunities will be updated on the main web pages and the the FAQs by October 1, 2020.  The NYC bus, the Sunday packet collection, and Seven Presidents finish area parking lot opportunities  have reached capacity for the November 2020 NJM races.  

Saturday events have free parking available at Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park adjacent to the start-finish area.
