Team Challenge 

Sign up your group for the 2017 Trail Run Team Challenge. This is a great way to inspire members to get fit and get outside. Encourage your company, neighborhood, family and/or friends to take this Challenge by signing up together as a team! The Team Challenge is based on how many total individuals attend the series of races, not how fast individuals finish. Remember you don’t have to be a runner to participate - walkers are welcome! 

How Do I Register a Team? 

Follow these steps to register your team: 

1. Decide on a team captain/contact person
2. Gather your friends and co-workers 
3. Fill out the Team Roster 
4. Decide on a team name 
5. Register (online or mail-in) for races or series 
6. Email team name, team captain, contact information and team roster to Jessie at jessie@miamicountyparks.com 

The team with the most participants at the end of the Series wins! Team Challenge winners will be announced at the Charleston Falls Preserve race on September 18th. Each individual on the winning team will receive a specialized team challenge winner shirt, 5 individual 2018 series registrations and the group will win a free two-hour rental at the Lost Creek Corn Maze ($200 value). If you get 10 or more members to sign up you receive a $5 discount per individual per race, see details above.
