Whether running in the half marathon (13.1-mile) or 5K (3.1-mile) race, corporate groups or groups of friends may race together as a co-ed team of 10 or more. Teams allow you and your running partners to challenge another corporation or running club in the spirit of friendly competition. Here are the rules:
- a minimum of ten must be registered per team by March 1st. (More than ten may join your team, but please note that, in the event your team wins, the number of award packages are limited to ten.)
- a minimum of eight people must finish the race in order for their team to be considered for a team prize (each team must have a minimum of at least 2 male finishers & at least 2 female finishers)
- team results are calculated by taking an average time of each team’s top eight finisher’s times, with a minimum of at least 2 male finish times & at least 2 female finish times.
- team participation by an individual does not affect eligibility to receive individual awards (i.e., age group winner, overall masters, etc).
Good luck – and may the best teams win!
The fastest average 5K Team & Half Marathon Team will win 10 team award & prize packages that will be mailed to each team captain.
*Note: in order to be eligible for team awards, teams must have at least ten runners register for their team by March 1st & have at least eight runners finish the race.
