and more!

We are very excited to partner up with racecheck to transform race participation into a more social experience. Together, we aim to give all runners the opportunity to meet a new running friend from the moment they enter the Guildford 10k on 13 October. Not everyone has a running buddy (yet), but by offering runners the chance to join a team community, everyone has the opportunity to meet new (and probably local!) people.

If you're already one of the hundreds of runners who have already signed up for this exciting new road run, you will have already chosen your "racecheck team". So what does this mean?

All Guildford 10k participants will receive a complimentary headwrap (buff) which reflects a racecheck team colour. During online registration, runners are invited to join either #TeamPink, #TeamOrange or #TeamTurquoise. Invite your friends to join the same team as you, or challenge your colleagues to race against you in a different team - you decide what you want to get out of being a racecheck team member!

If you follow @racecheck and @aatevents on social media*, you can "e-meet" other Guildford 10k participants who will be representing their teams using their team hashtags: #TeamPink, #TeamOrange or #TeamTurquoise. Motivate each other, encourage others to join your team and share your training stories. We recommend that you download the racecheck IOS app to receive racecheck team updates.

On race day, the colour-coded buffs will help you to easily identify other people in the pack who are running in your team- so in the spirit of encouraging others, why not make the effort to give them an extra cheer if you see them in the pack?

Those who thrive on the competitive aspect of running as part of a team will enjoy the racecheck team results table. Who will be the winning team- #TeamPink, #TeamOrange or #TeamTurquoise?

All participants will receive a complimentary headwrap (buff) which reflects 1 of 3 racecheck team colours. The aim of the game is for your team to get the lowest collective finish time. Which team will you join? #TeamOrange Field of Fitness members are entering #TeamOrange. Many of them are already training for the race at FOF's members-only run club. ๐Ÿ’ช #TeamPink The Porsche Centre Guildford team are raring to go in #TeamPink - which is surely set to be a speedy team. ๐Ÿ‘Š #TeamTurqouise Harrisonโ€™s Fund will be entering their team of fundraisers into #TeamTurqouise - youโ€™re sure to get plenty of cheers! ๐Ÿ‘ Meet others in your team on social media via #TeamOrange, #TeamPink and #TeamTurquoise hashtags, and on race day by your team flags near the start line. Invite your friends to join the same team as you, or challenge your colleagues to race against you in a different team โ€“ you decide what you want to get out of being a racecheck team member.
