Yay! Great leadership skills! As team captain, you will create a team for your company and will need to know some basic information like the address, number of employees, and name of your CEO. You will get a spiffy Team Captain shirt for leading your team! When setting up the team you should have financial authority from your company if your company is deciding to pay for employee registrations. You can always set up the team for members to each pay for themselves. Team Captains are asked to attend the team captain’s meeting to learn about the race, pick up their shirt, and other marketing materials to help recruit team members. We also ask that you know some basics about the race like date, time, and location all found on the website and how to register in case any of your team members might need some assistance. They can also give us a call, but a little employee camaraderie goes a long way in the office. You will also be in charge of picking up your teams’ race bibs the day before the race and distributing them on race day. You do not have to race yourself if you don’t want to, but we hope you join in the fun! It’s all what you make of it!

Your team captain should decide on a meeting place. The start line is going to be busy, and often participants don’t run with their phones. We suggest your team decides on a location like where team pictures are being taken, one of the sponsors tents to meet with your team, or maybe the beer truck and wearing corporate colors so you can find each other in the crowd!
