Cheer Zones are areas where organizations and groups gather along different intersections and streets on the course to encourage and motivate the runners. Get a group of your favorite friends, neighbors or co-workers together and decide on a theme. Play instruments, wave flags, crank up the stereo, wear costumes - do anything you can think of to keep the runners energized and spectators entertained. It's free to participate and we'll send you a kit to help you get going. Kits have Thunder Sticks, spectators' guides and other fun stuff to help your registered group get everyone fired up on race day.

 

Cheer zones are split into two categories:

1. Enter your Cheer Zone as a company-sponsored group. 

2. Enter your Cheer Zone as a residential group.

 

Each separate Cheer Zone category will be awarded $400 for first place, $300 for second place and $200 for third place to be donated to a recreation program, school, or neighborhood charitable organization of your group's choosing. Cheer Zones will be judged on enthusiasm and creativity.
