RUNNING AS A TEAM
There is no team entry in 2021. But why not join with other people and create an activity team? Do a relay, play a game together, or simply run or walk as a group.
The text below is just a way of making sure we do not lose any of our markers for next year!
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 we have stopped doing this as feedback told us it was confusing. Instead, individuals say in their own sign up if they are part of a team and what team that is.
You organise your team outside of Eventbrite and it is entirely up to you how you do this. But if you would like suggestions or help please get in touch.
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.
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.
