How to Create a Team and Team Prizes

Wood Road Elementary School won largest school team in 2016 & 2017!

Did you know you can create a team for the Scotties Stampede 5k Walk/Run? Put together a support system that will hold you accountable and motivate you!

Follow these 5 easy steps to register a team:

  1. Identify a team captain
  2. Create a Team Name and Password
  3. Register a team here
  4. Choose “Create a Team”
  5. Share Team Name and Password to enable others to join your team

We want to reward your hard work with prizes and recognition. You deserve it! There are two team prize categories this year.

  • LARGEST SCHOOL TEAM: The school building with the greatest number of registered team participants by the time the race starts will receive free Subway lunch on a weekday following the race. Please make sure your school building is included in your team name. Not sure if your building has a team captain yet? Contact Madeleine Petraglia, Race Director, at for a current update on your school team. Please note, you will be allowed to join a school team at on-site registration. Friends and family members are welcome to join school teams.
  • LARGEST COMMUNITY TEAM (excludes school building teams): Anyone in the community is invited to create a team – the more the merrier! Businesses, sponsors, clubs and families, put together the largest team (greatest number of registered team participants by the time online registration closes on May 16th at 10:00AM) and receive a private team tent for a post-race celebration and light breakfast (bagels, juice, etc.). Your private tent will have personalized signage featuring you team’s name, and your team will be acknowledged at the start of the race and at the awards ceremony.

There will once again be individual prizes this year. Stay tuned!
