Team Registration

How to register your team: 

  • Select your team captain. Team captains are responsible for naming the team, designating the team’s division and inviting team members to join and register.
  • Select your team – get your teammates/friends/co-workers together. Each member receives a high quality race shirt and finishers medal – and everything else that the marathon participant enjoys – water station support, food at the finish, music and more. Teams will be chip timed and results posted.
  • If your team is going to finish in greater than 5 1/2 hours, please use the Marathon Walk early start time.
  • Packet Pick-up – Relay teams have to designate ONE person to pick up their packets (It does not have to be the team captain). Please organize with your team ahead of time to minimize confusion for the team and our registration volunteer. Your team will have to get together after the Relay Team Bag has been collected to distribute the race bibs, shirts and relay information.

The Business Relay Registration includes your logo on printed on the back of the volunteer shirts, your name printed on the annual posters, your logo/banner displayed at the Business Relay site at the finish venue of the NODM.
