Running Teams

How Teams Work

Register for a half marathon as a team and run with the support of your friends. The more the merrier!

Registering as a Team

Most of our half marathons offer a team registration option. Team size be 6-12 people. There are no relays, but there is a team prize to compete for. Runners on a team of 6 or more will each receive a $10 discount* and the team will be automatically entered in the team category. You may have a maximum of 12 runners on a team.

The 1st person to register will create the team name. All other team members must use the same team name to receive the discount. You will register as a team, but pay full price for registration. The $10 will be refunded to each member of a team at the expo (or included with your bib, if you are having it shipped), as long as your team has between 6 and 12 members.

Please be considerate when choosing a team name. Any name team names we deem offensive will be changed to “Team A,” “Team B” etc.

*Military and promotional entries can count towards a team, but are not eligible for the $10 refund.

Team Scoring

Teams will be scored similarly to cross country scoring. All runners in the team category will be placed according to their finish time. We will add up the placing for the top 5 runners from each team and the team with the lowest score will win. At least 6 members must finish for the team to score.

Team Size

You may have up to 12 members on your team, but only the 5 fastest runners will be part of the score. Any other runners on your team can act as pushers or displacers.

    May runners add their names to a team after they have registered? As when the team was created later in the process after more runners had decided to enter and there were enough to have a team.

  • cathy corral says:

    If you register with a team, are you also eligible to place in the single runner category?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Cathy – Yep! You will complete as an individual and on your team.

  • Magnolia Flores says:

    With the event being sold out are we still able to join a team that still needs members?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Magnolia – Unfortunately, no, unless you are able to find a bib for sale from a runner who can no longer make it.

  • liz says:

    I now see that refunds were to be issued at the Expo. I missed that previously. Will our team still be able to receive the $10 discount?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Liz – The team refunds were not issued at the expo. The refund is issued to the card you used to register with. I am checking to see if the refunds have been processed for Great Smoky Mountains – if they haven’t they will be within the week.

  • Beani says:

    We are wanting to register as a team for the 2019 Bryce half marathon but there isn’t any place to enter this option. This will be our 6th team race with Vacation Races and we have run as a team all previous years. What do you suggest?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Beani – We do not have a team option for the ultra events, just the half marathon series.
