The 26x1 Relay Invitational is back and will be taking place on Saturday, June 3, 2023 at 8:30am in Medford at the Hormel Track. This year, we have expanded the field in order to invite back all teams that were invited & those that participated in 2022. For those that did not join us last year but were invited, the previous captain will receive an email; for each of those teams that participated last year, one admin will receive an automated email from RunSignUp, which is your reserved team entry for the 26x1 Relay Invitational.
Teams that are being sent an invite for 2023: SRR-1, SRR-2, BOMF, Brighton Bangers-1, Brighton Bangers-2, Cambridge Running Club, Cambridge Running Club-2, Community Running, GLRR-1, GLRR-2, Kier Byrnes Freedom Runners, Melrose Running Club, Mystic Runners, North Medford Club, November Project, Old Goat Track Club, PIONEERS Run Crew, RCMalden, Sole Sisters Running Club, The Heartbreakers, Wicked-1, Wicked-2, GFRC, HFC Striders, Informal Running (TMIRCE), Tri-Valley Front Runners (TVFR), Parkway, Boston River Rats
For Captains: Your team's relay spot is reserved until Wednesday, March 15th (roughly 10 1/2 weeks before the event) to create the team on RunSignUp and pay the full entry. Once you receive the email from RunSignUp, please register your team in order to secure your team's spot. All of that will be done through the "reserved entries" invite tool on RunSignUp so it is tied to a specific captain/club's email. We will follow up with a club multiple times in the week before March 15th. After that date, any uncompleted reserved entries will be rescinded to make way for another club to be invited off the wait-list.
If you have any questions or have not received the automated email by the evening of Wednesday, March 1st, please let Brian + Brendan know (BCullinan@gmail.com & BrendanJKearney@gmail.com), & we can confirm who was the listed contact from the club, and re-send the invitation to a different contact if needed. (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. You will be able to add additional admins on RunSignUp after the team is created.
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 now $425/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
Updated Refund Policy for 2023: We had a few teams bow out late last year, which made it very difficult to invite other teams that were on the wait-list. As a result, we've changed our refund policy. Team registration is 100% refundable before April 1st; 50% refundable through April 30th. No refunds will be processed for requests on May 1st or later.
To have teammates join your team: 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 all teams have been created. We anticipate that to begin in early/mid April, and will alert you in advance.
Reminder of Team Composition Rule (first enacted for 2021 race): 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!
