FAMILY REGISTRATION

The Beach2Beach is a family-friendly fun run that offers a special rate of $140 (Early Bird $120) for a family of up to 6 people (2 adults, 4 juniors). Each ‘Family Pack’ is open to between 3 and 6 family members, consisting of at least 1 adult and 2 juniors (17 years and below). Family race pack postage is available to safe on postage costs.

Things to know about Family Registrations

  • Each family registration must have a Family ‘Captain’ (Administrator)
  • To keep things simple, only the Family Captain can add family members (Participants) during the registration process.
  • Each individual within the Family can choose his or her own course option (13km, 6km, 3km). Note: There’s no longer a requirement for the whole family to run the one distance.
  • A Family can join an existing Team, but cannot create a new Team. Note: If the team does not yet exist, first create the team, then your Family can join that team.
  • Race Pack Postage: When you register your family, choose family postage only for the family captain. For all other family members, choose the pick-up race pack option. We will recognise you as a family and post all race-packs together. For the combined postaged you need to add all family members in one go. When adding family members at a later stage, new postage need to be paid.
TEAM REGISTRATION

How do I create a team?
Creating a team is a great way to bring together family, friends or colleagues as part of your participation in the Beach2Beach Fun Run.

To create a team, visit our registration form and;

  1. Select your preferred registration type
  2. Click ‘Create a Team’ on the pop-up box
  3. Fill out your teams details and click ‘Create my Team’ From here, you will be taken to the Team Managers Dashboard where it will then direct you to register yourself for the event. The Dashboard is also where you can manage your team details. Share your team name, and password if applicable, with your team members so they can select to ‘Join a Team’ when registering.

How do I join a team?
If your workplace, friends or family have registered a team for the 2021 event, you can join their team when registering. Once you have started your registration, click ‘Join a Team’ on the pop-up box and search for your team name.

I’ve already entered, can I still join a team
If you have already registered and wish to join a team, go to the register now dashboard with your personal login and select “join a team”.

Managing a Team
Once you’ve created your Team, you can go back at any time to add more members to your Team, contact Team members, organise delivery of Race Bibs, etc. As Team Manager, you manage your Team using your personal login.

Adding Members to your Team
As a Team Leader, you can add members to your Team yourself, but you will need their complete registration profile (i.e. contact details, date of birth, emergency contact info., choice of course option -13km, 6km or 3km) and you’ll need to pay for their registration… OR you can invite friends and family to join your Team themselves.  In that case, send them your Team link or just let them know your Team Name so they can search for it when they register, enabling them to join your Team.

Each Team member can individually choose whichever course distance they wish to run – 13km, 6km, 3km.
