Teams & Groups

Get a group of friends together, form a team, or race with your colleagues! Arc Race welcomes and encourages teams! There is even a prize for the largest team.

To form a team, simply download your Race Captain’s Packet, complete with information and registration forms.  Once you submit your Team Form, we will send you promotional materials, you’ll be eligible to compete for the largest team award and your team will receive recognition in our race program.  To help promote your team, you can download additional race poster to announce the forming of your team in your work place, church, or community building.  You can also request brochure stands, yard signs and promotional materials from Arc to help in building your team.

Many groups proudly create and wear team t-shirts for Arc Race.  Show your team or company pride by wearing your t-shirts during Arc Race!  (Who knows, your photo may end up in our magazine!)  Teams are also encouraged to collect donations in support of the Arc of Onondaga Foundation (pledge forms are included with the Team Captain’s packet).  Your team might “pass the hat” at the office or receive pledges from friends and family to sponsor your participation in Arc Race.  Though this is optional, your tax-deductible support helps local programs for fellow Central New Yorkers with developmental disabilities.

To join a team, simply fill in the “Team Information” section of the registration when you sign up to run or walk.  By filling out this section, you will be assigned to the appropriate team and your team will be credited for you during the headcount.  Members of your team do not have to participate in the same event for it to count towards your biggest team award. Alternatively, your Team Captain may provide paper registration forms to register everyone together (especially if your company is paying for registration fees), so check with your Team Captain for registration details.
