We got spirit, yes we do!
Attention sports teams, cheer squads and local groups: We need you! School groups of all ages and community, church or civic groups are invited to compete in the Eugene Marathon Spirit Competition! Spirit groups line the course ready to encourage participants every step of the way. Costumes and themes are optional, smiles and enthusiasm are required. Groups participating not only support our runner’s amazing efforts, but are also cheering to earn money for their team!
This year, we’ve upped the ante on our prizes because we want to encourage more spirit than ever before:
1st place – $1,000
2nd place – $400
3rd place – $300
4th place – $200
5th place – $100
Worried about the stiff competition this year? Don’t be! All Spirit Competition participants are guaranteed a participation prize and donation.
Sign up early to guarantee a great cheering spot. Repeat groups will be given preference for their location choices (depending on availability), and new groups will be assigned to a location along the course.
