Registration is now open for runner text message tracking for the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon. Runners, spectators, family and friends can sign up for live text messages alerts for all timed events.
These free alerts, sponsored by Cellcom, keep everyone up to speed on their runner’s pace, progress and expected finish time. For the half marathon, alerts are sent at mile 5, mile 10, mile 12.1 and the finish. Alerts will be sent at mile 5, mile 10, mile 13.1 (half-way), mile 15, mile 20, mile 25.1 and the finish for the full marathon. One alert will be sent for the 5K at the finish line.
To sign-up visit the “Track Your Runner” page on our website or text your runner’s bib number to 38909.
Runners can also enable social alerts for your Facebook and Twitter profiles from the track your runner page. When you sign-up and connect your accounts, updates on your progress will be automatically posted to your social media pages.
