Team Challenge

The Urban Bourbon Team Challenge is designed to get groups of all ages and abilities active. Teams are a great way to encourage teamwork and create a fun atmosphere among co-workers, friends, family, or social groups. The Team Challenge is open to teams of 3-5 people in one of three categories: Male, Female, and Coed. Each coed team must have at least two females.

As a team, your team members will receive all the normal perks of race registration (race shirt, finisher’s medal, access to the post-race Urban Bourbon Bash with free bourbon, beer, pizza and burgoo) along with additional items. This year, those items include:

  • A designated table for Team Challenge bib pick-up at Friday’s Packet Pick-up.
  • A private area near the Start Line with your own bathrooms and gear check, making your pre-race experience stress-free.
  • Free post-race massages.
  • An additional Team Challenge tech T-shirt.
  • Awards for the winning team in each category. Winning times will be decided by adding the top three finisher times for each team. For teams in the coed category, at least one female member will be counted in the three finish times.

Please note, all team challenge team members must be at least 21 years of age on race day. The cost to participate is $100 per team member until Sept. 11; price increases to $120 per team member from Sept. 12 until Oct. 18.
