Team Competition

There are both Corporate and Open team competitions for this year’s Cotton Row 10K! The Corporate Cup is for employees of the same corporation and the first place winners of the men’s, women’s, and coed categories will bring back a trophy back to their organization for permanent display and pride ($25/team entry fee in addition to individual entry fees). The Open Team Competition is for any group of friends, classmates, church group, etc., who would like to run together as team to add even more fun to the race, and will also have men’s, women’s, and coed categories with awards for the winners. There is no additional charge for open teams. Each team is required to have 3 to 5 members, and the top three times (at least one of each sex for the coed category) are scored. Please scan the appropriate section in the linked instructions (HERE) on how to register your team. And don’t worry – if you’ve already registered, you can still get on a team (see instructions)!
