Whether you are a team of 2, a team of 4, a team of 20, or a team of 100, you can enter your team into Park2Park to pound the pavement together for a good cause.
This year, you have the choice to run for research at the Main Event on Sunday 25 July or the Virtual Event from Saturday 17-31 July.
Together as a team, you’ll be making a real difference to local research to bring better care closer to home for our community.
Creating a Team is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
- Register yourself and create a Team name – get as creative as you like here.
- Encourage all your friends and family to register with your Team name too.
- Run together and have a lot of fun!
3 ‘pros’ for running as a Team
- Accountability – it’s harder to bail when someone’s relying on you!
- Motivation – making that full 5km is so much easier with someone (or few) by your side
- Social interaction – we’ve been isolated for so long, now it’s time to get social (while socially distancing still)
You could sign up as an individual, but where is the fun in that?
Throwdown the challenge to your friends, many of whom have probably told you how much exercise they’ve been getting during lockdown!
For parents, why not prove to your kids that you’ve still got it? Create a family team and generate a bit of friendly competition within your family or extended family or even rival it out with the neighbors in your street.
Who doesn’t love a bit of friendly competition in the workplace? We sure do! They say teamwork makes the dream work and we couldn’t agree more. We’re not trying to be biased, but Park2Park is one of THE BEST team building activities you can do with your team.
Missing out on cross country at school this year? Get your mates together for your Park2Park X Cross Country collab. You can run before school, after school, lunch breaks, or even convenience your PE Teacher to let you run during class.
Whether you’re a sporting club, knitting club or gamer’s club, there’s nothing stopping you from creating a Team for Park2Park. We know you like hanging out with these people, so why not bring them together to help support something bigger: Your health, fitness, and Virtual Healthcare.
