Come ONE, Come All - Open and Themed Teams

We're stoked that you want to do this - You'll have an AWESOME time! Below are several teams to choose from that will be made of individuals like you, who want to run on a team, celebrate Texas, and create unforgettable memories. Over the past several years, we've put several of these types of teams together, and they work out great. Running-wise, the goal is to finish and have fun. If there is an expectation, it is to appreciate EVERY team member and what they uniquely bring to the team.

The first person who signs up has the right to be team captain. If they decline any runner after them may choose to step up. Don't worry, we will walk you through all you need to know, and will be available for any question(s) you may have as the race approaches. If you are an encouraging, inclusive type of person, and you have email, you've got this! As a reward for stepping out as a team captain, your entry fee will be FREE! Please contact admin@TexasIndependenceRelay.com for a discount code. (If you want to be a team captain, but the team you would lead has already been started, please contact us. As teams fill, we will start new teams.)

IF teams are incomplete as the race approaches... we will combine compatible teams or ask if you would be willing to help fill an established team looking for an extra runner. Long story short, we feel confident that there is a great spot at the TIR for every person who registers. BUT, if for some unforeseen reason you are not able to be placed on a team, your entry fee will be refunded IN FULL.
