About Corporate Teams

Invest in the health of your employees while providing hope to children

Join us for Sunburst Races 2021 benefiting our region’s only children’s hospital, Beacon Children’s Hospital.  On Saturday, September 25, 2021 nearly 7,000 runners, walkers, spectators and volunteers will come together to support the health and well-being of the children in our community.  Starting in downtown South Bend and finishing on the 50-yard line of Notre Dame Stadium, Sunburst Races is one of the largest community events in Northern Indiana. 

It’s not just individual runners and walkers that join us on race day, we have groups too!  In fact, our Corporate Team registration option is very popular.  

What exactly is a Corporate Team?

A Corporate Team is a group of people that want to run or walk as members of the same team.  Corporate Teams can be created for businesses, churches, schools or community organizations.  To create a team, there is no minimum or maximum number of participants.  There is also no fee to create a team.  

Why create a Corporate Team?

Because walking/running with your co-workers and friends is a blast!  Nothing beats that festive feeling of camaraderie, community, accomplishment, and support. 

What benefits do Corporate Teams receive?

  • Cross Country Style Scoring for the 5K and 10K (must have at least 5 participants in these events)
  • Customized race shirts with logo printed on the sleeve (must have at least 10 total team members)
  • Expedited Packet Up for Team Captains (must communicate this option prior to the Expo)
  • Access to the Corporate Team Tent/VIP Area (tables and seating with extra food and drinks from Jimmy Johns, music, photographer with access to free downloadable photos post-race)

What is the cost per team member? 

Because of the extra benefits Corporate Team members receive, pricing is slightly higher than individual pricing.  The events are priced as follows:

  • Half Marathon – $85
  • 10K Run – $45
  • 5K Run – $40 
  • 5K Fitness Walk – $35

Any registration discounts offered by Sunburst Races do not apply to Corporate Teams.  

Do all members of a team have to participate in the same event?

No, team members can participate in whatever event they choose. 

What if we don’t have at least 10 team members?

You can still create a team.  A total of 10 members are needed for the customized race shirts (logo printed on the sleeve).

How is race information shared with team members? 

Each team needs to have a main contact, commonly referred to as the Team Captain.  Captains are the ones that typically create the online team, assist with team member registration and questions and share information from Sunburst Races.

How do I set up a team? 

To create your team, visit Run Sign Up and follow the prompts provided: https://runsignup.com/CorporateTeams/PublicList/32607   

When creating your team, you will have an opportunity to customize your team options.  You’ll also want to create a code/password to share with those that are allowed to join your team.  A code prevents someone not associated with your team from joining. 

As the team captain, how do I see a roster of team members?

Once you’ve created the team, you’ll have access to manage it.  You’ll be able to pull a list of team members, edit your settings. Etc. 

Does the team pay all member registration fees?

That’s up to each individual team.  In the “Event Costs” section, you can enter in the percentage of the registration fee 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 our company/organization wants to pay either a portion or all of our team member registration fees, when/how do we do that? 

If you choose to pay a portion of all of the registration fees for your team members, you will receive an invoice (via email) after Corporate Team registration closes on 8/31/21.  The invoice can be paid online by credit card or you can mail a check for payment. 

What if family members of our company/organization want to join?

When the team is created, you will have an opportunity to select whether or not family members or even friends are allowed to join your team.  If you check the box, allowing family members or friends to join, then you can set the maximum number of additional registrants an employee can register for your team. 

Is there a deadline to register? 

Yes, all Corporate Team members must be registered by August 31, 2021 at 11:59pm EST.  No additional team members can be added after the deadline – no exceptions.

What if one of our employees is already registered for the race as an individual participant, can he/she still join our team? 

Yes, as long as the individual has permission to join the team (from the team captain), send an email to:  sunburst@beaconhealthsytem.org and we’ll get you taken care of.
