You do not have to be in a team, but being part of one is fun and makes the race more interesting and enjoyable. You can enter as a member of an OPEN TEAM (any sex and age) in the 8k run, 4k run or 4k walk, or in a PRIMARY SCHOOl or HIGH SCHOOL team (both “students only”).
There must be at least 3 people in each team. Results are determined by the sum of the times for the 3 fastest team members. Every team must have an agreed Team Name and a designated Team Leader.
It is quite easy to register a team and enter as a team member. If you are entering online, simply provide the exact team name in the ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS section. You will also be asked for the Team Leader’s name and phone number. It is important that every member of your team provides the exact same team name here, because this is the only way our registration system has of associating team members. However, it is OK if only one team member provides the Leader’s name and phone contact.
The online entry system allows each team member to enter and pay the registration fee separately. It also enables more than one person to be registered under a single credit card payment – so you can register all or part of your team in one transaction.
Alternatively, team members can register by e-mail, post, fax or in-person using a physical entry form – see How to Enter.
SPECIAL CASH PRIZES FOR THE WINNING SCHOOLS TEAMS
We offer a special cash prize to the school(s) with the winning team in each of the two school 4k run categories – Primary School and High School. The prize goes to the school (or to an associated entity nominated by the school, such as the P&C Association), not to the individual team members.
In each case the amount of the prize will be calculated as the sum of (a) entry fees paid by team members PLUS (b) $10 per team member. In other words, if the school team recording the 3 fastest times is comprised of 50 students under 16, the total entry fees would be $10 x 50 = $500 PLUS a further $10 times 50 team members – a total of $1,000 for the school. The 2011 Primary School prize was won by South Coogee Public School.
