Marathons & Race Registration

ECSC employees are eligible to participate in marathons and races each fiscal calendar year. These events are a benefit for ECSC employees and promote employee wellness. 

Process:
Registration process for organizational approved Events:

  • The Swellness Committee will send an announcement regarding an upcoming race.
  • Employees will be required to sign up for an event they wish to participate in using sign-up sheets located in common areas.
  • Per fund availability and eligibility criteria, ECSC will register interested employees for event and pay for registration fees.
  • Employees will receive their ticket confirmation prior to the event.

Registration process for individual requested Events:

  • Contact Human Resources regarding your personal interest to participate in an upcoming race.
  • The employee’s request will be approved per fund availability and eligibility criteria.
  • If approved, the employee will register themselves in the event and provide a copy of the itemized receipt to Human Resources through an electronic portal at Cognito Forms for payment reimbursement.

Eligibility Criteria:
ECSC full-time and part-time employees are eligible to participate in a race at no cost per the following guidelines:

  • If the funds are available.
  • Registration cost per employee cannot exceed $100.
  • An employee may not exceed in more than four (4) total race or walk registrations per fiscal year, July 1-June 30, unless pre-approved by the Swellness Committee due to fund availability.
  • Two (2) of the four (4) maximum registrations are allocated toward an organizational approved race.
  • Two (2) of the four (4) maximum registrations are allocated toward individually requested race participation.
  • It is recommended that employees wear the ECSC logo shirt during a race or walk, but it is not required. ECSC also requests that participants take pictures during the event to provide to the Swellness Committee. 
  • If an employee does not attend a race that has been paid for by ECSC, they will be required to reimburse the organization unless their absence was due to an emergency.

What is an organizational approved race versus an individual requested race?

  • Organizational approved races are pre-selected and advertised by the Swellness Committee through periodic email announcements. These events are generally team events. The Swellness Committee’s goal is to advertise two (2) events per Fall, Spring, and Summer. 
  • Individually requested races are available for employees to participate in upon individual requests due to the employee’s personal interest. These events do not include events that the Swellness Committee has already advertised and requested participation. These events must be pre-approved by the Swellness Committee for reimbursement of registration fees, in order to verify that the eligibility criteria above are met.
