TEAM RELAY RACE

TEAM CAPTAIN REGISTRATION PROCESS

To create a new team, the Team Captain will follow these steps:

  1   Click on the “Create a 100 Mile Relay Team” button below
  2   Create a personal “account” with RaceIt!, our online registration vendor.  This will allow the Captain to access team information later, and invite other runners to join the team and make changes to team name or members.
  3   Enter your Team Name.  (This may be changed at a later date.)
  4   Select your Competition category—i.e., Mixed M/F, all male, all female, masters (all Team Members are over 40) or Clydesdale/Athena (at least 4 Team Members must meet the standard: Clydesdale must be at least 200 pounds, Athena must be at least 150 pounds).  In addition to this selection, there is a separate Military team competition.  Any team with at least four members who are active duty, reservists or veterans may compete and should check the appropriate "Military Team" box on the regsitration page.
  5   Create a team password
  6   As Captain, enter your information to register as the first Member of the new team. If you will NOT be racing, you must register at least one team member at this time in order for the team registration to be complete and "official".
  7   The “Manage Your Existing Team” screen will appear. Here, you may send invitational emails to prospective Team Members if you wish, and/or do that later.  You may also change the team name, competition category or team password, now or at a later date.
  8   Checkout and pay the full team registration fee
 

CAPTAINS: INVITING TEAM MEMBERS

Inviting “Members” to join the Team:
  1   While creating the new team (described above), the Captain will view the “Manage your existing Team” page, and be given the option there to “invite” people to join the team by sending them the available email.  That email message automatically includes a link to the registration page for the new Member to complete.  (Each runner must know the team name in order to register.) The Captain does NOT have to invite people to join at this time, and will have the option to invite others later.
  2   The Captain will be able to send a similar invitational email to others at any time after creating the team by accessing the “Manage your existing Team” function described more fully below.
  3   As an alternative to receiving an e-mail invitation to join the team, runners who are given the team password may join the team by clicking on the “Join an existing team” button below, typing the password, clicking on the team name from a drop-down list and completing the screens.

ATTENTION CAPTAINS: TEAM VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENT

Each team with one or more team members residing within 50 miles of any point along the course must provide a race volunteer to be available on race weekend for a minimum of four (4) hours. (Multiple volunteers may cover that time commitment.) Online Volunteer Registration is required, and the process allows volunteers to select the position and time slot they prefer--first come, first served.  NEW FOR 2014: ALL TEAMS REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A VOLUNTEER MUST DO SO NO LATER THAN MAY 1, 2014, OR WILL BE REQUIRED TO DONATE $100 IN ADVANCE OF THE RACE TO THE "CANCER FOUNDATION OF THE FLORIDA KEYS".  DOING NEITHER WILL MAKE THE TEAM INELIGIBLE FOR RACE AWARDS.  Do your fair share in support of the race: identify your team volunteer and ask him/her to register before May 1st.

REGISTRATION FEE REFUND OPTION: FUNDRAISING TO BEAT PROSTATE AND OTHER CANCERS
Racing in the Florida Keys is a lot of fun, but the cause of beating cancer is as serious as it gets and is an important component of the KEYS100. In that spirit, any runner in the individual competitions, or team in the relay race, that delivers paid donations to the "Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys" in an amount at least equal to three (3) times their paid registration fee will have their fee refunded in full. For example: a team that registered before midnight, January 31, paid a team entry fee of $600. If that team delivers paid donations of at least $1,800 prior to race day (that's 3 times the paid $600 registration fee), the entire $600 race registration fee will be refunded. Similarly, an individual 100-miler who registered prior to midnight on January 31 paid an entry fee of $205. If that runner raises at least $615 in paid donations by race day, his/her paid fee of $205 will be refunded in full.

Notes:
Additional shirts: Included in the registration fee is a race shirt for each runner.  These will be distributed at pre-race check-in.  Registered runners who are interested in buying additional shirts will have the option to do so at pre-race check-in on.  


Charitable giving and fundraising: The KEYS100 strongly encourages charitable giving.  As a convenience, runners may make a donation at time of registration should they choose to do so.
