How can I register as a group?
If you wish to participate at the Marathon of Ghent with a 'group', you can register your group using an unique GROUP CODE at the moment of registration.
To request a group code, you need to follow the steps below:
HOW IT WORKS
All registrations that use the unique group code are connected to each other. This means that no matter when the registration took place or what account have been used to do the registration in the first place. It's the group code that connects all the group members, not the account.
STEP 1. CHOOSE A GROUP RESPONSABLE
Each group needs to have a so called group responsable. In practice a so called contact person to which the members of the group and our organisation can adress our questions regarding registrations within the group. The groupsresponsable (or another member of the group) can pick up all the running numbers and chips of the whole group. The groupsresponsable can, but does not necessarily need to be a participant of the race.
Make an account.
The group responsable first needs to make an account on our website (nevertheless if he/she also participates to the Marathon of Ghent). If you did not yet made an account you can do this by clicking on the following link: Create a new account
STEP 2: DETERMINE HOW YOU WANT TO PAY:
There are two possibilities:
Option A: Every group member pays for his or her own registration at the moment he of she register on our website
Option B: The company / group responsible receives an invoice afterwards for al the group members that have been using the group code. This means no payment from the group member is required at the moment of registration.
Please let us know what option you prefer when sending the email.
STEP 3: SEND US THE INFORMATION
Let us know you want to obtain a group code by sending your request to email@example.com
Important: make sure you provide ALL of the information below:
- First Name of group responsible
STEP 4: WE CONTACT YOU
The moment we receive all the information, we will communicatie to you your group code. Then, and only the people can registering for the Ghent Marathon as a member of your group.
Keep in mind that this can take a few days, depending on the number of applications.
PLEASE NOTE: No individual registration can be add to your group afterwards, so please be aware that each group participant need to use the groupscode AT THE MOMENT OF REGISTRATION to be part of your team!
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more info about registering as a group.
