Team Challenge 

Sign up your group for the 2018 Trail Run Team Challenge. This is a great way to inspire members to get fit, healthy and outside. Encourage your company, neighborhood, family and/or friends to take this Challenge by signing up together as a team! The Team Challenge can compliment your healthy lifestyle by providing an opportunity to set and accomplish goals over a six-month period. Remember, the goal is better health, so you don’t have to be a runner to participate - walkers are welcomed!

This year we updated how teams compete to win...the 2018 Team Challenge competition is no longer based on the number of total participants. It is based on your team’s participation rate. If your team maintains a 65% participation rate over the first four races you automatically win a one hour corn maze outing. In addition, each person on a team will receive a specialized team challenge winner shirt if they complete 4 or more runs. But remember, your team must maintain a 65% participate rate to be considered for the shirt. Teams cannot be smaller than 10 people. 

How Do I Register a Team? 

Follow these steps to register your team: 

1. Decide on a team captain/contact person
2. Enlist your friends and co-workers to join
3. Choose a team name
4. Fill out the Team Roster (tip: choose people who will participate, if a team member does not participate, it will count against your team's total participation percentage) 
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 

People that are part of a registered team receive a $5 discount per individual per race, see details above.The team with the highest participation percentage at the end of the Series will also win 5 individual 2019 series registrations.

TEAM SHIRTS: Teams have the option to purchase custom team shirts. They are available for $10 each. To receive team shirts by the first race, please submit team name/logo to Jessie by March 1. Shirt sizes and quantities must submitted by March 23. All shirts will be given to the team captain for distribution at first race. You can continue to add team members throughout the series however, special arrangements would need to be made for additional team shirts - extra charges may apply.
