RUNNING AS A TEAM

In addition to running as an individual, or in a family, you can also run as a team. In fact we would love you to set up your own teams!

In past years you could create a team on the Eventbrite sign up page but this year we have stopped doing this because it added to an already quite involved and potentially confusing sign up process. It’s entirely up to you how you organise and manage your team. But if you would like suggestions or help please get in touch.

The refugee support group ‘Belonging Together’ has entered a team in ’17 and ’18! they chose to run together as one group all in the same time slot.

You could do what the Steel City Striders have done in past years and put up a team for the whole 24 hours – one runner for each hour. Or like the GoodGym last year you could plan to form a group to cover the hours of darkness. The Woodcraft Folk entered multiple people at multiple times and kept track of laps completed on a whiteboard we provided.

One couple formed a team where they ran every other hour all night.

The Steel City Striders put in an impressive number of laps over for the whole 24 hours!

You could get a group of friends or colleagues together and all run at the same time. It really is entirely up to you.

You will have to organise yourselves as regards how you decide to set things up. The only we thing we would ask is that you let us know your team name so we can keep track.
