Team Pricing & Registration

Team Member Refunds!

Team members that get 5 runners to join their team receive a $5 refund! Here's how it works. You sign up for $25 and create a team. 3 more of your friends sign up and join your team. They also pay $25. When the fifth runner joins your team, that fifth runner pays just $20 and the four other team members get a $5 refund! 

Bulk Team Pricing

Team Captains have the option of paying for the entire team. Here's how that works: The team captain signs up for $25 and creates the team during their registration. They can then go into their new team page HERE and purchase a pre-paid package for $75. This will allow up to 4 more people to sign up for the race and join the team for FREE!
