The San Luis Obispo Marathon, Half Marathon + 5K is pleased to have Morris & Garritano as the sponsor of our Teams Initiative. We launched a team discount incentive program for the 2013 race and attracted over 700 participants, with Morris & Garritano as one of the largest teams. They want to inspire corporate wellness in the community and challenge companies to create a team for the 2014 races.

It's easy to create a team and gather people to run or walk for your company, club or charitable cause. Team running builds camaraderie, fun and commitment. Here are the steps to register YOUR team for the 2014 SLO Marathon, Half Marathon + 5K:

First

someone takes the role of Team Captain and registers online as usual, paying full price. When prompted during the registration process, the team captain creates the team name.

Next

your team members register online as usual, paying full price. When prompted, they select the team name.

Then

recruit as many members as you can: family, friends and associates can all participate on your team. Recruit even from beginner athletes; they can register for the 5K and still count towards your minimum team size of 15 (even though 5K athletes don’t participate in the rebate.)

Those teams who have 15 registered members by March 16, 2014, become eligible for the team incentives:

  • a rebate amounting to $15 for full and half marathon registrants (if a member has already taken a discount, the difference will be refunded)
  • team tech shirts for all members (including the 5K runners.)
  • Team Captains of teams with 15 or more members will also receive a refund of their registration fee. And team captains with 25 or more members will receive special SLO Marathon swag.

  • All registrants are invited to a training workshop on March 8, 2014 from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. at Morris & Garritano, 1122 Laurel Lane in San Luis Obispo. Ian Adamson with Newton Shoes will talk about running mechanics and there will be a training run on the marathon course afterward.
