Like your Grandmother always used to say, THE MORE THE MERRIER! With that in mind, the St. Charles Running Festival is giving you added incentives to build a SOCIAL TEAM and run as a group.
SOCIAL TEAMS as small as 5 people get discounted entry fees for signing up with a team, regardless of when then register. Plus teams can earn prizes and discounts the bigger their team become.
Teams of 25 or more can earn special race day accommodations including a reserved tent for your team, parking passes and more!
On race day, we will offer prizes for the biggest teams and other awards for the best costumes, most spirited and more! Prizes will range from gift certificates to area restaurants, tickets to area events and a grand prize of a night at the Blue Crabs ballpark in a Suite.
When registering you will have the option to Join a Group/Team. All Members of a SOCIAL TEAM are linked by their team name and password. As your team grows, everyone benefits, event those who register first! The system will automatically refund everyone on the team who has already registered and charge the new team members the new rate. You can receive multiple refunds so as your team grows in size, you will continue to reap the benefits.
Running with a friend (or a group!) really is so much more fun than running alone. Once the race is over, a team is there to celebrate, and relax after the accomplishments of the day. Plus, they’ll keep people going and motivate them to finish strong if they’re starting to feel sluggish mid-race. Teams get bonus points if they wear matching team t-shirts or costumes!
Before the race even starts, a team is a built-in training support system. A dedicated team will spend some time running together before the race starts, getting to know each member’s quirks and pace. An individual can push off or ignore scheduled training runs, but a team won’t let them get away with skipping them! Besides support, team members also make for great accountability partners, and will help members to be completely prepared come race day.
You can easily create or join your social team during registration! If you already registered, and didn't join or create a team, it's not too late! For all instructions CLICK HERE!
