How to Start a Team and Register for Lauren’s Run

Interested in participating in Lauren’s Run but not sure how to get started?  We can help!

How to Start a Team:

First organize a team for the Team Challenge of at least 10 people and choose a team captain.  Teams may include any combination of runners, walkers and tot trotters.

Be creative! Awards will be given to teams with the most pre-registered participants, the team that raises the most money and the team with the most spirit. Teams are made up of 10 or more people running or walking together.  Each team member is encouraged to raise a minimum of $100.  Team members may include friends, family, neighbors, co-workers–anyone who wants to get involved!  Team members do not have to attend the run to participate in raising money for your team.  Be sure to register with the correct team name, choose a Team Captain and set a fundraising goal!

Recruiting Team Members: Ask all of your friends and family to join your team.  Place posters around schools (with permission), place an article in the school newsletter and include information on the school website, and challenge other schools to enter a team!
