Team Challenge

We’ve added a new competitive element to the Daisy 5k — a cross country style Team Challenge! The Daisy 5k was originally an all women’s race, and we wanted to keep that spirit alive by having a coed competition. Participation in the team challenge is optional, but why not grab some friends and join the fun?

Team Rules:

  • Each team must have at least 5 and no more than 7 members
  • Each team must have at least 2 male and 2 female members
  • To qualify as a masters team, all team members must be 40 or older.

Team Registration:

During registration, you will have the option to create a team or join an existing team.

Creating a team
  1. Choose your division: Open or Masters. To qualify as a Masters team, all team members must be at least 40 years old.
  2. Choose your team name: The first team member to register chooses the team name and has the option of setting a password. Any participant will be able to join a team that does not have a password.
  3. Recruit your team: Give your friends the team name (and password, if you have one) so they can join you!
Join an existing team
  • During registration, search for your team’s name and enter the password if there is one.

Remember, teams may have no more than 7 members and must have at least 2 male and 2 female members.

Scoring:

Points are awarded to the individual runners of eligible teams, equal to the position in which they cross the finish line (first place gets 1 point, second place gets 2 points, etc.).

The team score is the point total from the team’s top 2 male members, top 2 female members, and the next fastest finisher (either male or female).

The team with the lowest score wins!

Awards:

We will have awards to recognize the fastest team and the fastest masters team. In order to qualify as a masters team, all team members must be 40 or older.
