Cheer Zones Information

We want the 2011 UnitedHealthcare NC Marathon to be FUN for both runners and spectators. So, we are creating special CHEER ZONES where groups can dress up and go crazy as the runners go by. Cheer Zones groups will be judged and prizes (donations to the charity of your choice) will be awarded to the top three Cheer Zones. Cheer Zones will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Creativity
  • Enthusiasm
  • Use of Theme

Play your favorite music, make banners and signs, create a unique theme…do whatever you can to make it fun and exciting for both your cheer group and the runners! Cheer Zones must be registered to be eligible for prizes, so sign up your group today!
