Friends and Family Teams!

It's always more fun participating as a group.  Sign up as a Friends and Family team.  A team of 4 or  more will end up paying just $20 each, a saving of $5 off each registration.

Here is how it works:

  • When registering, be sure to select the Join Group/Team button next to the event selection.
  • The first person registering will need to create the team.  All others will then be able to select it.  
  • The first 3 people to register will initially pay $25.
  • The 4th person and all later team members will pay $20. 
  • The previously registered team members will automatically receive a $5 refund when the 4th person registers.

*** Groups must pre-register. Group discount will not be offered at day-of registration.

Note: In order to properly track team members to provide refunds, it is important that ONLY the first person to register types in a team name AND all others SELECT it.
