Cheer Zones and Water Stops

The Women’s Running Series takes great pride in providing our participants with an unforgettable event. One of the most important elements of an amazing race day experience is the atmosphere on the race course!

Cheer Zones

We are looking for energetic groups to fill designated Cheer Zones along the race course. Cheer Zones have the spirit that helps motivate and inspire each participant during their 13.1-mile journey to the finish line.

Every Cheer Zone will be eligible to win the coveted “Most Spirited” Award and 1st place will receive $500, 2nd place will receive $300 and 3rd place will receive $150! Cheer Zone groups will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Best Attire or Theme (costumes, uniforms, etc…)
  • Décor / Signage
  • Inspirational/ Motivational messages
  • Cheer Volume
  • Number of People (need at least 10 to qualify)

Groups of all ages are encouraged to apply to be a Cheer Zone. Dance teams, cheer squads, sports teams, academic and social clubs, youth groups, marching bands, etc. – are all welcome!

Getting involved is easy! You just need a group of at least ten members with a designated adult contact who are excited and enthusiastic about cheering the runners on to the finish line and who are available from 7-11am on race day!

If your group is interested in becoming a Women’ s Half Marathon Cheer Zone, the application will be available early Spring 2014

Water Stops

Is your group, team, business, or organization looking for a great way to get involved in your community? Staffing a Water Stop at the Women’s Half Marathon is the perfect way to get involved in a great event where you can promote your organization and give back to a great cause in a fun, positive atmosphere. Plus, you’ll have a close up view of all the race day action!

We provide all of the water, supplies, and equipment – you supply a group of at least 20 volunteers with one volunteer designated as the captain. The captain will be the main point of contact with race staff and must be available to attend an important informational meeting that will be held in the evening a few days prior to the race. Water Stops will arrive at their designated location at 5:30am on race day to begin their set up. The race starts at 7am and the entire course will be closed at 11am.

To volunteer your group for a Water Stop, please have the designated Captain complete the Application/Contact Form below. Groups will be assigned to a location preference on a first come, first served basis. There are a limited number of stops available that fill up fast, so we look forward to hearing from you soon!  Application coming soon!
