Team information

The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival is a great team building activity! Team members can choose any of the 4 distances whilst still being part of the one team. It is also a great fundraising activity for friends, families or corporates.

Make this your fundraising event for 2017

For many participants this event will be a personal challenge so why not make this event your fundraising activity for 2017 and make a difference! It couldn't be easier with the online fundraising tools that allow you to create your own team fundraising page for a charity close to your heart.

Teams vs Individual registration

The cost to enter as a team or individual is the same, but running as a team has its benefits! Your friends and family may help boost your motivation, improve your performance and make your experience that little bit more fun on the race morning if you're feeling nervous!

There are two team types that can be created:

  • General Teams: team members pay their registration fee at the time of registration
  • Corporate or "Pay Later" bulk teams: your company will pay team members' registration fees all at once.

Team Benefits:

  • FREE entry is granted to team captains of teams with 10 or more members (please contact us when yourself and 10 other entrants have registered). 
  • If you have a team of 20 or more, with prior arrangement you can collect all Event Kits at once. Please contact us to organise the bulk Event Kit collection prior to 5pm Friday 25 August 2017. This is to allow enough time for our team to organise and collate the team's Event Kits together. Without confirmation your Event Kits will not be collated and each team member will need to collect individually. This also means that your team needs to have 20+ members prior Friday, 25 August 2017. Any new changes, entries will not be pre-packed.

  • Are you a corporate team? If you require payment via invoice, we can arrange this for you - there is no need for a credit card! Please contact us to setup your team!

General Team

Create or Join a team

To create a team, simply select “Create A Team” during your registration process. You will need to select a team name, and a team password is optional. The first team member to register will be the Team Captain.

To join a team, simply select “Join A Team” during your registration process. You will need to search for the team name, and enter the team password when prompted.

If you forgot to join a team and have already entered, contact us for assistance.

Corporate Teams (“Pay Later” Bulk Teams)

Create a team

To create a team and become a team captain, please submit the Corporate Registration form here>>

Your team creation will be confirmed within 3 working days via email.

Maximum 500 members in a team. Each team member can register for their preferred event, and will have their individual result. To get the most out of entering a team, you should aim for 20 entrants as a minimum. 

Corporate team members’ registration

To register as part of a corporate team, please follow the registration guidelines that the Team Captain has provided. You shouldn’t be asked to pay your entry fee at the time of registration.

After successfully registering, you’ll receive an email confirming your registration. Please note you’ll not receive your bib number until the payment has been finalised by the Team Captain.

Are you fundraising as a team?

If you’re fundraising as a team, to make the process easier, we can create the team page for you and add the current team members into the page.

Once the team page is created, additional team members will be able to join by following these instructions.

Corporate Teams Terms and Conditions

All team members must be paid for by Friday 25 August, 2017 at 5pm.

No places are guaranteed until full payment has been received. As several events within the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival reach capacity before the event day, it is recommended that all team members register and the Team Captain pays for their entries as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

If a team member has selected a start group that sells out before payment is received, they may be allocated to the next available start group i.e. if the Half Marathon A group sells out before payment is received, the entrant will be allocated to the B group where possible.

Teams will not be able to be reopened to facilitate the same payment method after the invoice has been issued. Should you wish to add any additional team members, they will need to register and join the team using the registration link on the website and pay for their entry fee at the time of registration with a credit card.
