What is an “Official Team”?
An Official Team is a team with 10 or more members! As an Official Team, the Team Captain will receive the “Official Team” logo that can then be used or printed on team t-shirts, emails, team flyers, etc.! It’s a great way to show others the work you have put into recruiting more teammates. And besides, you’ll have way more fun surrounded by friends and family on Race day!
When you start your team, you will be asked to select one of seven a team categories. We ask that you please select the category that is most appropriate for your team. Once registered, you will start competing against other teams in one of the seven categories for 1) Most Participants, and 2) Most Funds Raised. The categories include: Workplaces with 500+ Employees, Workplaces with -499 Employees, Schools, Family/Social, Gyms/Fitness Clubs and First-Time Teams.
The Team Challenge cutoff date for Most Participants is Monday, October 10 and the cutoff date for Fundraising is Tuesday, November 15th. Keep in mind that registration fees are not included in your fundraising total.
Team Tailgate Area
The Team Tailgate Area is where the party is at on Race morning thanks to our generous sponsor, CTI! Teams who recruit at least 25 members and have raised $2,500+ by Friday, October 14, 2016 will receive four parking spaces near the Race Village for your team to meet and celebrate before the Race!
Team T–Shirt Rules
Teams love to show their pride and enthusiasm through t-shirts and we love to see all that goes into your team t-shirts!
Please follow our t-shirt rules:
Use of the Komen Maryland Race for the Cure® and/or Susan G. Komen® logo is not permitted. Teams can only use the phrase “Komen Maryland Race for the Cure®” as long as it appears exactly as written here, including the ®.
No pink shirts. We reserve these for Survivors only. Pink designs or lettering is okay!
Phrases like “Racing for the Cure” or “sponsors this event” are not acceptable for use, however “Company name supports the Komen Maryland Race for the Cure®” is acceptable.
Challenge Your Team. Challenge Yourself. Make Your Impact Today.
Race participants who are on a team raise more funds than individuals. Starting a team is a great way to honor or celebrate a survivor, remember those who have fought this devastating disease, or spend quality time with family, friends and co-workers while serving the community. We’re excited you’ll be a part of this year’s Race and we challenge all of our teams to help us reach our fundraising goals for 2016! Make your impact today.
