Is there a minimum / maximum number of participants in a team?
The minimum number of team members is 5. There is no maximum number of team members. Teams with 20 or more members can apply for bulk Event Kit collection. Team captains are eligible for free entry if they recruit 10 or more entrants to join their team. These 10 or more entrants must be registered prior to the captain to recieve a free entry.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to organise the bulk Event Kit collection prior to 5pm Friday 29 August. This is to allow enough time for our team to organise and collate the team's Event Kits together. Without confirmation, your Event Kits will not be collated.
Can we enter as a team if team members want to participate in different events within the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival?
Yes, team members are able to select whichever of the four distances is suitable for them and still be registered within the same team.
Is there a discount for team entries? Does it cost anything to set up a team?
There are no discounts for team members, however we do offer free entry to team captains as a thank you for managing the team (with more than 10 team members). Please refer to 'How do I create a team?' on the Team Info page for more information about this incentive.

This information will be available shortly.
Why is my bib number '0'?
This information will be available shortly.
Is my place in the event guaranteed if payment has not yet been made by me/organisation?
No places are guaranteed until full payment has been received. As several events within the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival reach capacity before event day, it is recommended that all team members register and pay for their entries as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
If a team member has selected a start group that sells out before payment is received, they will be allocated the next available start group i.e. if the Half Marathon A group sells out before payment is received, the entrant will be allocated the B group where possible. There are no exceptions.
