Creating a 5K team is easy!

When choosing a team name, be creative! Contact us to add a team name to the 5K roster and start recruiting. Your teammates simply pick your team name from the drop-down list, and they will be added to your team. When you form your own team, you are the captain of the team and have an important role. As a team captain you will:

  • Recruit your coworkers, friends, and family members to join your team. (Teams of all sizes are welcome.)
  • Communicate to your team members how to register.
  • Select a team name and recruit colleagues, classmates or friends to run/walk with you.
  • Each individual teammate must register for the 5K, and select a team name from the drop-down list.
  • Make a team member a Co-captain to help with communication and team duties as necessary.
  • Questions? Review the team captain packet, 5K FAQ or contact Ebony Clay.
