Cross Country Team Challenge

Thursday July 30th, 2020

Belmont, MI

Official Website


Running IS a team sport and the Cross Country Team Challenge allows you and four of your friends to experience it all together.  This event resembles a high school style cross country meet, using standard scoring and a 5K course.  This is a team event, with 5 to 7 people per team.  If you don't have a team or enough people to make a full team, let us know and we will help you put a team together.

The 5K course is two loops featuring mowed grass, packed dirt, and gravel.  Be sure to check out the course preview video below to get an idea of what you will be running! Make sure to mark your calendars for August 17.  The gun goes off at 6:45pm!

How to Register

We tried to make it as easy as we could for you to register and start your team (if you have one). The first person on your team to register has the ability to create the team. From there, that person can share the team name and a link for others to join. We also activated the features that allow you to change your team name and the type of team you have (female, male, coed). We are also happy to help with all of this.

If you don't have a team yet (or don't want the pressure of creating the team name), no worries! Go ahead and register yourself and we can help you unite you with a team later.

When in doubt, ask! Remember, teams can range from 5 to 7 individuals, with only the top 5 places counting towards your score (with any other runners on your team helping to block other team members from securing lower points). Coed teams don't not have a requirement for the number of males or females they have on them, just at least one member of the opposite gender.

NEW this year is that we will be chipping timing the event!

We have youth pricing turned on so anyone under the age of 20 will receive a $10 entry. If a high school team would like to register to participate, email us at [email protected] for a special discount code.
