Registration for the 2012 Rocket City Marathonwill open on May 28t, 2012. The Rocket City Marathon is more than just a race. It is an "event" built around the race. We work just as hard creating exciting activities to make your trip to the Rocket City fun as we do conducting a flawless race on a fast course to produce an enjoyable race that should yield your maximum performance. The carbo supper is excellent and we feed about 500 each year so be sure to give it a try.
Race start is at 8:00 AM. Seeding is by best marathon time in last three years. Ten mile or half marathon times may be used if no recent marathons. A runner must not run with another runner's number. Do not exchange, sell, or give away your number. Your race number must remain visible from the front during the race.
A finish you won't forget. Your name and hometown are announced at the finish. You'll be met by two of our runner handlers who will greet and give you assistance until you are inside. The field hospital is right inside and the handlers will direct those needing medical attention to the medical area. Free showers are available at the Aquatic Center, south of the Holiday Inn.
