COMPANY TEAM SCORING
Companies may enter as many team members as they wish. A company must enter a minimum of 3 men or 3 women in order to be included in the Corporate Team scoring. Company teams will be scored in finishing order, utilizing their official race times, in both the Men's and Women's team scoring divisions. The top 3 male finishers from each company team will be automatically combined to score as that company's Men's team. The top 3 female finishers from each company team will be automatically combined to score as that company's Women's team. Only full-time employees of the company are eligible for scoring teams; Interns and contract employees are not eligible for scoring teams.
The top 3 overall men and top 3 overall women finishers will receive distinctive awards.
The scoring members of the top 3 Corporate Men's teams and top 3 Corporate Women's teams will receive distinctive awards.
The company team competition is open only to business entities which are represented by their employees as scoring company team members. All other types of membership organizations (e.g., social clubs, athletic clubs, etc.) may not enter the company team competition. However, their members may participate as non-scoring individuals in the race.
Participants must be actively employed, by the company they are representing.
Each participant must complete a Runner Entry Form in order to be officially entered and eligible to participate. Participants certify that they are medically fit to participate. Paper forms must contain original signatures.
There is no limit to the number of employee participants per company.
All participants must wear their assigned race numbers clearly visible on the front of the torso during the race. Race numbers must be displayed in full view, and may not be folded or cut in any way.
Walkers may not start in front of any runners and may not start the race early. Walkers must complete the full 5k course route and may not take optional or shortened routes.
All team members must participate unaided. Roller skates, skateboards, rollerblades, roller skis, bicycles, and animals are strictly prohibited anywhere along the course. Their use will result in disqualification of the individual participant and may result in team disqualification. Baby joggers are permitted, but they must line up at the back of the field at the start.
The first 3 male participants from each company to cross the finish line after running the full 5K course will be automatically scored for that company's men's team. The first 3 female participants from each company to cross the finish line after running the full 5k course will be automatically scored for that company's women's team.
