Team Challenge

Team ChallengeOur 10th annual Team Challenge allows area businesses & community groups to compete for recognition as the organization that best exemplifies a commitment to healthy living & social responsibility in the Greater Charlotte area. Teams are recognized based on company / organization size in Charlotte. Past champions include Clariant, Metso Power, Alston & Bird LLP, RSM and Duke Energy. 

Represent your company or community group by competing in the 5K, half-marathon or relay. Not interested in running? Volunteer on race day instead. A minimum of 10 runners / walkers is required - there is no maximum. 

Benefits of participating in the Team Challenge:  
  • Showcase your organization to over 3000 runners, spectators, vendors and volunteers on race day 
  • Foster friendly competition and team building as you compete against other Charlotte businesses / organizations for bragging rights in 2019
  • Give back to the community through fundraising for the YMCA Annual Campaign and volunteering on race day

  • Team Engagement
    • 20 points for each runner / walker above the 10 participant minimum 
    • 10 points for each volunteer 
  • Team Spirit
    • 30 points for entering a T-shirt design
    • 50 points for winning the T-shirt design competition
