Team Challenge 

Sign up your group for the 2020 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 four-month period. Remember, the goal is better health, so you don’t have to be a runner to participate - walkers are welcomed!

Update for the 2020 Team Challenge: competition is based on the total number of participants over the series of four races. The team with the highest participation over the entire series receives five free entries for the 2021 Trail Run Challenge and a one (1) hour team outing at the Lost Creek Reserve Corn Maze.
