Sedona Marathon Event Appreciates Elite Runners - and offers incentives to Marathon Elites
Thank you for your interest in the 2016 Sedona Marathon Event which will be held in Sedona, AZ, on Saturday, February 6, 2016. We are pleased to be able to provide a comprehensive package to a limited number of elite runners who participate in this year’s marathon.
Included in our elite package are the following:
Free housing for one night (February 5) will be provided at a sponsored race hotel, subject to availability. A limited number of hotel rooms will be available to our elite athletes ONLY. Please note that hotel rooms may be shared; each elite runner may be paired with another elite runner of the same gender. If you are traveling with family members or other guests, you will have to make other arrangements for accommodations.
Complimentary pasta dinner the evening before the race
Breakfast on race day
Race entry fee will be waived
To qualify for these elite benefits you must be 18 years of age or older and you must complete the application belowin its entirety, providing proof of having completed a marathon in the last twelve months at or under 2:30 (for men) or 2:55 (for women). Applications will be reviewed as they are received and notification will be issued promptly.
The application deadline for elite consideration is January 1, 2016. There is an application fee of $50 which must be submitted along with the form for consideration. If your request for elite status is not accepted, this money will be returned to you immediately. If your application is accepted, this money will be used to hold your spot and will be refunded after you complete the marathon. If for any reason you need to cancel, you may do so without penalty, provided we are notified by January 15, 2014. If you do not cancel your application by that date and you do not run the marathon, you will forfeit the entire amount of deposit.
Apply early, as there are only a limited number of elite spots available and there has been tremendous interest in previous years. Applications will be considered on a “first come first served” basis.
All questions regarding elite runner status should be directed to Jeffery Frost at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you again for your interest. We look forward to seeing you here in Sedona.
