Some helpful tips on forming and joining your very own The Color Run™ Team…
Let’s face it. The only thing more fun than busting out 5 kilometers of Color Running madness is doing it with some Color Crazed friends and family. Here is a quick Q & A about forming and managing The Color Run™ Team.
How does a “Color Team” work compared with a solo runner?
Pretty simple, you run as a (4+ person) unit rather than as an individual. You get to pick a groovy custom team name, anything from The "Roy G Biv All-stars" to "We Sweat Rainbows". You then get to run/walk together, and “help” each other get really colored up over the 5 color kilometers.
Is there a “Relay” component to running as a team?
Nope. You just register together and run. Some teams stay together for the entire run and some separate as they cover the course. Both options are A-OKAY with us.
Can we make our white running shirts that we wear for the run custom with a team name on them?
Abso-frikkin-lutely. Be as creative as you like! As long as the shirt is mostly white you are good to go.
What is the best way to CREATE a team during the registration process?
First the team captain needs to register under the category “team registration”, CREATE the team during the registration process, and pay for themselves. (In order to CREATE a team you have to select the option that you are registering yourself and are over 18 years old)
**Note to team captains** Please make sure you tell your team members EXACTLY how you are spelling and spacing your team name. Too often you creative cool Color Runner Captains come up with very similar names and your team members get confused!?!?
Once that is done, the rest of the team members can go register and either: A – Register and pay for themselves. When registering, select “Join a team”, search for the team name, and select the correct team. (this will allow each runner to have a link on their registration email to transfer their registration to someone else if for some crazy bizarre reason they decide not to be cool and run with us. It will also allow them to edit and make changes to their personal information on their registration form) OR B – Register all the remaining team members and pay in one transaction (this will only allow the first runner to transfer their registration. All other runners registered in this one transaction will have to email firstname.lastname@example.org make a transfer and we will charge you 1 dozen freshly baked cookies upon check-in at the race. Preferably chocolate chip….with rainbow colored M&M’s of course…..)
REMEMBER: *Pricing is per person…..not per team. *Creating a team does not hold or reserve spots! We highly suggest registering as close together as possible so as to not have the race sell out in the middle of your team registering. *You just registered for the happiest 5K on the planet!! GO CELEBRATE and start counting down the days until your race! If you have any more questions about your Active.com team registration you can call or shoot them an email.
