How to register as a team

Option 1. All teammates sign-up themselves. A ‘Team Captain’ will need to register first and create a team name, to be shared with his/her teammates. All other runners signing up afterwards simply need to select this team name from the team drop down menu when registering.

Option 2. The Team Captain signs-up everyone. To sign-up on behalf of teammates, download and send this sheet to your teammates to complete. The Team Captain needs all of their teammates’ personal information including name, gender, birth-date and age, email address, address, emergency contact and shirt size. During the registration process there is a check box asking if you are registering someone other than yourself. Check this box and then sign-up on behalf of your teammates who will subsequently receive an e-waiver that they must sign in order to complete the transaction.
