**Fancy dress prizes!  Go on make us laugh**

6.4km TEAMS and 3,2km TEAMS:  Every team member needs to register individually and note the team name where requested – a team can have unlimited members – the first four finished will have their times added up for the team prize (teams must be a minimum of 4).

6.4km and 3.2km SCHOOL TEAMS – Primary & Secondary (Grade 7 -10) Schools: One person (the team captain does not have to compete, but its more fun to join in!) needs to register as an individual and set up the team name (e.g. Riverside Primary School) and then each student can register at home and select ‘Riverside Primary School’ as their team (as instructed above for other teams).  The first four finished will have their times added up to determine the fastest school teams (teams must be a minimum of 4).

400m SCHOOL TEAMS – Primary Schools: One team member needs to register as an individual and set up the team name (e.g. Riverside Primary School) and then each student can register at home and select ‘Riverside Primary School’ as their team (as instructed above for other teams).  The focus is on participation so this prize is for the school with the most entrants.

**** Plus we will be presenting perpetual plaques to the fastest Secondary school team in the 6.4k , Fastest Primary School in the 3.2km and the largest 400m Primary school team ****
