Important Notes

I am a Team Captain – How do I manage my team?

  • First, Sign-Up for a ChronoTrack Live Account to Manage a Team.
  • Next, register yourself using Team Name
  • Now you are ready to spread the word to you teammates to register and provide them your team name. Team Members will need to enter the team name upon registration for team tracking.
  • Please note: You can create one team for both runner and walkers. Essentially the event is a 5K Race including a walking race and a running race. We offer separate categories based on registration choices (i.e. a walking registration choice: 5K Walk or 5K Run registrations for what the athlete prefers.)
