Reach The Beach combines fun, fitness, adventure and team building like no other running event. Once you get a team started, everyone wants to join in.

Here are five simple steps to get you started:

1 - Register Your Team

Reach The Beach sells out every year. We recommend registering your team as early as possible to guarantee your spot in the event. REGISTER TODAY!

2 - Recruit Team Members

Recruiting 11 team members can feel a bit overwhelming. We recommend recruiting another person to be your co-captain. Your co-captain should share the responsibility of recruiting runners for your team. Then, instead of having to find 11 runners you only have to recruit 5 and your co-captain only has to recruit 5. Some great recruiting sources include: neighbors, running clubs, running groups, family, friends, co-workers, etc. If you are still worried about recruiting a team sign up for our “Six-Pack” option. Simply gather 3-5 friends to fill your van and we will pair you with another team of 4-6 to make a standard 8-12 person team! All the fun of a full team with half the effort!
