"6 Pack" Teams
Image

 

Here at the Harpoon 5-Miler, it's tradition to run in teams of 6, aptly named “6 Packs”! Teams can be all female, all male, or co-ed. 

 

All teams must be filled by Thursday, May 2nd @ 12:00 noon EST. At this time, team registration will be closed.

 

How should 6-Packs register?

Every runner MUST register individually. Runners who plan on running as part of a team do not have to do ANYTHING differently on registration day. So don't panic when you don't see a team option during registration-- it's not supposed to be there!

After all runners successfully register as individuals, you will have the option to organize yourselves into a 6-Pack Team AFTER registration is full. As long as all six of your runners sign up before the race fills up, you will be able to create your team after registration closes.

 

If my anticipated teammate doesn't register before the race fills up, can I wiggle him/her in so that my team can be complete?

No! Teams can only be comprised of runners who successfully register before the race fills up. If your anticipated teammates did not successfully register as individuals before the race filled up, we are not able to add your unregistered runners to your team. So make sure everyone signs up in time! If you plan on running together, please make sure all of your friends and family are as serious about registration as you are!

 

So then what happens if all of my anticipated teammates do not register in time?

If fewer than 6 of your anticipated runners register in time, you have two options:

1. You can all run as individuals (but you can still run, dress, act, and drink as an unofficial team). 

2. You can grab another friend (someone who is registered, of course!) to complete your team.
