Teams consist of 4 members (no more, no less). Each team member signs up individually under the “team type” you choose (male, female, co-ed) and enters their team name when prompted. Be sure the team name is identical for each team member! Team time is determined by the last team member crossing the finish line. If a team member is not able to participate on event day, your team will be timed, however, you will not place as a team.
