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:
Firstsomeone 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.
Nextyour team members register online as usual, paying full price. When prompted, they select the team name.
Thenrecruit 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:
All team registrants are invited to a training workshop on January 11, 2014 from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. at Morris & Garritano in San Luis Obispo. Gait analysis and running technique, injury prevention, sports nutrition and race strategy are some of the topics that will be covered.
