You do not need to know all of the people in your team when entering. You have up to September 30th to complete your team online. However, we encourage you to complete your team as soon as you possible can.

If someone in your team wants to do more than one leg, that’s ok.

If you are struggling and you need a team member, tell us. We will do our best to find you someone. Contact admin@ekiden.co.nz

This year you do not have to tell us which leg each member is doing. Which means you have up to the day of the event to decide which member is doing which leg. You can even change the order on the day.

Note: Teams must have at least 3 members to enter and at least 5 members to qualify for merit prizes.
