Team UP!

One Team posses near the finish line, 2013

A team generates fun and more race participation, getting more women involved in fitness. Having a team can bring recognition to your business, organization or whatever type of group you designate as your team. Team Up! with your staff, service organization, hobby group, family, school or just a bunch of friends. Define your team by name and the number of women members in your group; then get as many of them as you can to enter the Montana Women's Run as a team: Team Up! Challenge other similar groups to do the same, and see which of you enter the greater percentage of your members in the Run. You do not have to run or walk together as a group; just enter together, in either race, even if some of your group enter the 2 Mile and others the 5 Mile.

Plaques will be given to the team with the greatest percentage in the 26-50 and the 51 and over categories. Plaques will not be given to the 5-25 category.

Team Up registration Fee is $30.00 paid by the Team Captain. The Team Captain and all Team Members will still need to pay their individual race entry fees. Team Captains will receive a special gift All Purpose Bag.

  • Get your team together and choose a Team Captain.
  • The Team Captain must create and pay the $30.00 for the team online first before team members can join the team.

If the Team Captain is entering all members then please print off and use the Team Up Worksheet to gather all necessary information to enter each participant. Include email addresses if possible. You will need these to send additional information to your team members.
  • After the team has been created by the Team Captain, participants can be registered for the team either individually or by the Team Captain. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE TEAM CAPTAIN WILL STILL NEED TO REGISTER HERSELF FOR THE TEAM. THIS WAS NOT DONE WHEN CREATING THE TEAM.
