When someone signs up for an event, we pass on the necessary information (name, address, age) to the race or meet management personnel. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of entering the person in the event. However, this information may be used to create programs, heat sheets, and results for the meet which may include the entrants’ name, home city and state, age, etc. The Murfreesboro Half Marathon has advised meet management personnel that if they plan to use this information for purposes other than entering a person in the event, they must notify The Murfreesboro Half Marathon.
