Community Teams

Description:

The Community Teams event is an opportunity for people to benefit from mutual support. Teams can be family, social, work-place, sporting group or a combination of all of the above.

Click HERE for a list of teams that have 10 or more paid entrants. If you would like your team added to this list, simply get your team to 10 or more paid entrants and provide us with a single logo and website link. We'll do the rest.

Individuals who are a part of a team are still eligible for all prizes and awards in the event that they have entered.

There are three levels of prizes for Community Teams, as follows:

  • The outright winner (see draw rules below) will be provided with a buffet dinner function at the Town and Country Tavern in Wangaratta for up to 100 guests. If the winner is remote to Wangaratta the prize will be $800 cash.
  • The second placed team (see draw rules below) will be provided with a buffet dinner at the Town and Country Tavern in Wangaratta for up to 60 guests if the winning community team is remote to Wangaratta. If the winning team received the buffet dinner then the prize for second place will be $300 cash to contribute toward a team function.
  • The third placed team (see draw rules below) will be provided with a buffet dinner at the Town and Country Tavern in Wangaratta for up to 30 guests if both the winning and second community teams are remote to Wangaratta. Otherwise, the prize for third place will be $100 cash to contribute toward a team function.

Creating a community team is a simple process. It can even be done without making an entry for yourself. To create a team, follow these steps:

    3 - Enter basic details and click "Continue",
    4 - Click the "Create a community Team" button,
    5 - Fill in the details and you're done,
    6 - You will receive an email after you enter your basic details and then another email when the team is created.

Community Team Rules:

  • The winning team will be drawn at random from all those that meet the following criteria:
    • Every team that achieves 80 finishers will be granted one entry into the major draw.
      • For each additional 10 finishers, a further entry into the major draw will be granted.
    • Every team that achieves 800 finisher kilometres will be granted one entry into the major draw.
      • For each additional 100 finisher kilometres, a further entry into the major draw will be granted.
    • Entries are cumulative, so if a team achieves 80 finishers AND 800 finisher kilometers they receive two entries.

  • The second placed team will be drawn at random from all those that meet the following criteria:
    • Every team that achieves 40 finishers will be granted one entry into the second place draw.
      • For each additional 10 finishers, a further entry into the second place draw will be granted.
    • Every team that achieves 400 finisher kilometres will be granted one entry into the second place draw.
      • For each additional 100 finisher kilometres, a further entry into the second place draw will be granted.
    • Any unsuccessful "major" draw teams will be entered into the second place draw, with the second place draw criteria being used to determine the number of entries they are allocated in the second place draw.
  • The third placed team will be drawn at random from all those that meet the following criteria:
    • Every team that achieves 3 finishers and 20 kilometres will be entered into the third place draw.
    • One entry into the draw will be given for each finisher.
    • Any unsuccessful "major" draw or "second place" draw teams will be entered into the third place draw, with the third place draw criteria being used to determine the number of entries they are allocated in the third place draw.

Example: Team Jones has 93 finishers that achieve a total distance of 1136km. Team Jones is awarded 2 entries in the draw for their finisher numbers (80 minimum plus another entry for the extra 10 finishers), and 4 entries for their total finisher distance (one entry for reaching 800km, then a further three entries for gaining an additional 300 finisher kilometres). Team Jones has 6 entries in the major draw in total.

Additional Rules:

  • The “Community Teams” event is a completion based award.  It is to encourage participation rather than fast times.
  • Finisher kilometres will be allocated as follows:
    • Entrants that complete the 5km event will be allocated 5 points for the team,
    • Entrants that complete the 10km event will be allocated 10 points for the team,
    • Entrants that complete the Half Marathon event will be allocated 21.1 points for the team,
    • Entrants that complete the Marathon event will be allocated 42.2 points for the team,
    • Entrants that complete the 2km event (primary children only) will be allocated 2 points for the team, but only if they have a parent or carer entered into a longer event.
    • Parents / carers that accompany their children in the 2km event do NOT earn Community Team points.
  • A Team must be noted in the participants entry,
    • Existing entrants may not join a team after online entries close,
    • New entrants after online entries have closed may nominate a team when entering,
    • Only event participants noting team entry details prior to the event will be allocated to the team (eg no team member requests after the event),
  • Individuals who choose to enter multiple events may have results from multiple events included in the Community Team points (scheduling does make it possible for an entrant to run more than one event),
  • To add yourself as a team member after you have entered, please click the edit details link in your registration email.
    • You will be taken to your online entry details. Click "continue" on the first page,
    • then the "Edit details" tab, and
    • then the "edit" button next to your entry.
    • Now you can select a community team from the drop down list.
  • The “Team coordinator” will be responsible for distribution of race bibs (if bulk entry),
  • Prize allocation details:
    • The winning prize is a buffet dinner at the Town and Country Tavern restaurant in Wangaratta. Additional guests (if required) can be added at just $15 per head.

The buffet menu will include at least one vegetarian option, one gluten free option, and one dairy free option. It may be possible to modify the menu to cater for specific team needs if requests are reasonable and sufficient notice is given.
      • The “Team coordinator” is responsible for determining the guest list,
      • The “Team coordinator” is responsible for providing final attendance numbers three days in advance of the function.
      • Event organisers will not establish criteria for the determining of attendees and take no responsibility for the manner in which the “Team coordinator” determines the invitation list.
