 Important Information About Team Competition/Running of the Pairs - SEE BELOW.

  • Running of the Pairs (2 People) - Pick a partner and run together!!  Have you and your partner do the following:
    1. When registering online, one of you will be the "Team Captain", the other will be the "Team Member"
    2. The "Team Captain" will register first, creating a "Team Name", "Team Password" and paying the registration fee.
    3. The "Team Captain" then shares the "Team Name" and "Team Password" with their pair, and the "Team Member" will then register for the race.  When team members create their own profile (first time users of the online system), they ignore the club drop down list in the profile set up as this is not the Team Competition Drop down list that the captain has set up for the Team Competition. 
    4. The "Team Member" will choose the "Team Name" from a dropdown, and must enter the "Team Password" to register.
  • Team Competition for 8K Run.  (Up to 8 people)
    1. When registering online, one of you will be the "Team Captain", the others will be the "Team Members"
    2. The "Team Captain" will register first, creating a "Team Name", "Team Password" and paying the registration fee.
    3. The "Team Captain" then shares the "Team Name" and "Team Password" with the rest of the team, and the "Team Members" will then register for the race. When team members create their own profile (first time users of the online system), they ignore the club drop down list in the profile set up as this is not the Team Competition Drop down list that the captain has set up for the Team Competition.
    4. The "Team Members" will choose the "Team Name" from a dropdown list in the registration component, and must enter the "Team Password" to register.
    5. The top 3 times in the Team will be used in the competition
  • The "Team Captain" must sign up first to create the "Team".  Team Captain will pay in full a total of $240.00.  No refunds issued if your team has less than 8 members.  If for some reason your Team Captain had been issued a promo/discount code, only the Team Captain is allowed to enter this and get credit, otherwise if future team members attempt to use it, it will show up as invalid when registering and cannot continue.  Simply leave the promo code box blank to proceed.
  • The "Team Captain" will receive a confirmation email with the "Team Name" and "Team Password" that can be forwarded to the rest of the team.  The remaining team members will not be charged since your captain has paid in full.
  • Important Notice:  It is strongly suggested the Team Captain pay via credit card instead of mail-in method.  This way, your team is guaranteed to participate.  Otherwise, until there is a receipt of payment, team packets will be withheld until payment in full is received.

NO REGISTRATIONS OR ADJUSTMENTS FOR RUNNING OF THE PAIRS OR TEAM COMPETITION WILL BE ALLOWED AFTER ONLINE CLOSES.  No exceptions.
