ATLANTA – January 5, 2017 – Atlanta Track Club is looking for groups and organizations to provide entertainment at Atlanta’s only marathon! In exchange for providing music on the Publix Georgia Marathon & Half Marathon course on Sunday, March 19, the Club will make a donation to all organizations selected. This program is designed to increase course support for our nearly 10,000 runners and walkers, give back to the community through which the Club runs and increase the visibility of the Atlanta music scene.
Musical acts must be a not-for-profit organization to be considered to perform at the Publix Georgia Marathon & Half Marathon and be connected to the neighborhoods, schools and communities along the course. Examples include high school bands, collegiate bands, church bands, drumlines and pipe and drum corps.
Selected acts will be responsible for the following:
• Performance time of 7-11 a.m. or 8 a.m.-12 p.m. on Sunday, March 19, depending on course location.
• All musical acts must play continuously (short breaks are acceptable).
• Promotion of the act’s involvement with the Publix Georgia Marathon & Half Marathon on its social media channels or email communications in the weeks leading up to the event.
Atlanta Track Club will provide the following for selected acts:
• $500 donation
• Promotion of each group’s involvement in participant communications including, but not limited to, social media posts, e-blasts and the official event website.
To be considered, contact Sue Payne, director of community outreach and membership, at [email protected] by Friday, February 10, 2017. Please include the name of your group/organization, description of group/organization and a proposed rundown of entertainment. All acts will be notified by February 27, 2017.
