If a race director has enabled and set up corporate teams for a race, you can then go in, as a captain, and create a corporate team for runners to join.
CREATING A NEW TEAM FOR CAPTAINS
If you are a looking to set up a corporate team as a captain, begin by opening up the tab for “Corporate Teams” on the desired race page, and click on the button for “Create a New Team”.
Note: If the “Corporate Teams” tab is not available to you, then corporate teams are not enabled for this race.
Initial Team Creation
Begin by entering in your unique team name, and select one of the team types from those available to create.
Note: You can learn more about what each team type includes by referring to the description box provided.
If you would like, you can also enter in a code that all registrants must enter in order to join your corporate team.
Note: While code setup is often optional, there are some races where the race director will insist that all captains create an entry code for their team. For these instances, you will be notified before moving on if you need to create a code.
In the “Event Costs” section, you can enter in the percentage of the event costs that the team will pay for members. Enter in a zero (“0”) if the member will be paying the entire amount needed for registration, enter in one hundred (“100”) if the team will be covering the entire cost of the member’s registration, or enter in any other number to cover that percentage of the member’s registration.
If you offered to pay a percentage of the member’s event costs, you can use the calendar to designate when you will stop paying for additional team members, or you can enter in the maximum number of members you are going to cover. If you enter in both an end date and a maximum number, then the cost coverage will cut off with whichever parameter is reached first. If you leave both of these fields blank, no limits will be placed on your percentage payments.
Use the check box to set whether family members and/or friends are allowed to join this team or not. If you check the box, allowing for family and/or friends to join, you can set the maximum number of additional registrants an employee can register for the team, and you can use the text box to write in any further details related to registering family members and/or friends.
Corporate Team Setup Payment
When you click “Continue”, you will be brought to the payment information for your corporate team. At this point you can choose to either “Pay Now Using a Credit Card”, or you can choose to “Pay Later”. Once you have a payment method selected, hit “Create Team”.
Note: The race director does have the ability to customize corporate teams so that the teams must pay for the initial fees at the time of setup. If this is the case, you will only be shown the option to “Pay Now Using a Credit Card”.
After hitting the “Create Team” button, you will be given confirmation that your team has now been created.
Corporate Team Management
If you click on “Go to Team Page”, you will be brought to your newly created team’s page. Here you can manage all aspects of your personal corporate team. For a detailed run-through of what you can do on your corporate team’s page, please refer to the section for “How to Manage a Corporate Team for Captains” located here.
