The 2022 GWTC Sickle Cell 5k run features a team racing competition
Here are the rules and details:
We have five divisions of teams: Men's, Women's, Co-ed, Middle School, and Elementary.
Each runner may only compete in one team division.
This does not affect individual competition or awards.
Open Men's and Open Women's
Teams are required to have at least four runners (minimum) and are limited to five runners (maximum).
There is no age restriction. Youth can compete if they wish.
Co-ed open teams must have at least four runners (minimum) and are limited to five runners (maximum).
Additionally, co-ed rosters must include at least 2 males and at least 2 females.
This means that the following are the possible combinations of males (M) and females (F):
note that a 3-1 MMMF or MFFF is not a legal roster.
Youth divisions (Middle School and Elementary)
The minimum number of runners for a valid team is four.
There is no maximum number of runners for youth rosters.
These teams can have any combination of males and females.
Team members must attend the school or complete on the school team.
The results are based upon the total time of the top four runners - not based on traditional cross-country scoring.
You may change, join, or create teams up until 11:59 pm on the day before the race.
At midnight before the race, team rosters are finalized.
Note that any team with less than four runners is not a valid team.
In the case of co-ed teams, rosters with only one male or only one female cannot be considered valid.
In all divisions, the top four (4) runners will be scored and the team race results will be calculated based on the total finish time of those four.
Additional runners (after the fourth) will not be calculated in the team competition.
We have exclusive, team-only awards for the top team in each of the five divisions.
These are in addition to any individual awards for overall and age groups.
Feel free to inquire with any questions.
We hope this adds to the race experience!
