Spread Some Martian Lovin’ Cheer at one of our Martian Marathon Spirit Zones!!
Get ready for a 2014 Martian Marathon that will be OUT OF THIS WORLD!! Runners, spectators and aliens alike will be talking about how they could hear the excitement from here to the moon! Here’s the scoop, we are designating special SPIRIT ZONES where groups can dress up and go crazy as the runners go by! Spirit Zone groups will be judged by the runners and prizes will be awarded to the top three Spirit Zones.
Last year hundreds of dollars in prize money was given to Spirit Zone Earthlings! A shout out to U of M Dearborn XC Team for being our top prize money winners! Can you show these Spirit Zoners up?!
Spirit Zones will be judged on the following criteria:
Play your intergalactic jams, make signs and banners….better yet, create a unique theme that will shock and awe the runners keeping them smiling on their 26.2 mile venture! Your Spirit Zone is yours!
