Running is more fun with friends! Start or join a co-ed team of 10 or more, and run the race together in the spirit of friendly competition!
There are two ways to win as a team:
- Be the biggest: win rewards as one of the the 2 largest half marathon teams, and/or
- Be the fastest: win prizes as the fastest team in your division, half marathon or 5K
Rewards for the 2 Largest Teams
The two half marathon teams with the most members by February 1st will win the following:
- 1st (largest half marathon team): Free parking, pre-race reception* with private restrooms near the start line and post-race reception
- 2nd: Free parking, pre-race reception* with private restrooms
*The pre-race & post-race receptions will be held at a location to be announced. Team members must be registered by February 1st to receive the winning teams’ benefits. [To all team captains: stay tuned for a follow-up email regarding team winner announcements approximately 2 weeks before race day.]
Prizes for the Fastest Team
All teams are co-ed & must have 2 or more of each gender finish to qualify for prizes. Teams are scored based on the sum of the fastest 8 finishers’ times. Here are the rules:
- There are 2 divisions: “Half Marathon Co-ed” & “5K Co-ed”
- Half Marathon teams can only have half marathon participants and 5K Teams can only have 5K participants
- More than 10 may join your team. However, in the event your team wins, the number of award packages may be limited to approximately 10.
- If you have less than 10 on your team, that is OK, because each team member is still registered as individuals. Team participation does not affect eligibility to receive individual awards (i.e., age group winner, overall masters, etc).
- A minimum of 10 must be registered per team by February 1st in order to be eligible for awards.
- A team’s final score is the sum of the fastest 8 finishers’ times (with 2 or more of each gender in the calculation).
- The lowest team score in each division wins
Good luck – and may the best teams win!
