It only takes 5 to make a team. The more the merrier!

Chugach Alaska Corporation Team

  1. ID a Team Captain and select a team name. Click here to create your team online beginning May 11 and share the team name with family and friends. Your teammates can become part of the team when registering after May 18. The Team Captain can also administer her team online and add people to her team after they have registered. (Note: Be sure that your team uses the correct team name, i.e., Team ABC is different than ABC Team. Each teammate signs up individually!)

  3. Have fun! Wear coordinating t-shirts, crazy hats or a feather boa – show your support for breast cancer programs. Read more “Helpful Team Tips” here.

    Can Teammates Run Together?

    ~All participants must follow local and state mandates in place at the time of the run (i.e., shelter-in-place orders, social distancing, face covering requirements, etc.)
    ~While you may not be able to run together physically, we encourage teams to focus on fundraising and supporting each other while running their individual race or participating with your family unit only.
    ~You can still have fun and show your team spirit even without running/walking together. Post photos of your coordinating t-shirts, crazy hats or a feather boa – and share it on social media with #AKRFW1in8.

    If you have any questions about forming a team please email teams@akrfw.org.
