Team & Family Registrations
Beach2Beach is a family-friendly fun run that offers a special 30% discount for family registrations. 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).
Note: The 30% discount will only be applied after the minimum requirement of at least 1 adult and 2 juniors (17 years and below) has been met, during the registration process. Postage rate for families has also been reduced this year by $2 per participant.
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) or even choose to be a ‘Virtual Runner’. 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.
25% Cashback for Schools and Teams
Beach2Beach is keen to have more school students and Teams involved in our big charity event in 2019… so we’re adding a major incentive for ALL Schools and larger Teams to register.
Who is eligible for the 25% Cashback Offer?
- Schools: Every Primary or High School that enters a Team in the 2019 Beach2Beach will receive a guaranteed 25% ‘cashback’ on all entry fees for their Team. That’s automatic cash straight back to the school, to be spent on any worthwhile initiative that benefits students, or money that can be given directly to each school’s chosen charity.
- Other Teams: The same 25% Cashback will be applied to any group or organisation that enters a Team of 25 or more, the cashback going directly to the Team’s chosen charity.
We know that managing a Team is not always an easy task. So, we’ve improved the Team Registration process, adding more flexibility and functionality in the management of teams. We’re making it easier for Team Leaders to manage their teams and for people to join those teams.
We’re also keen to acknowledge a Team Manager’s efforts by rewarding Teams that register 10 or more members. So we’ve introduced a 10% discount for those Teams registering at least 10 members.
Note: The 10% discount will only be applied if you register at least 10 Individual participants at the one time. Family registrations already receive a 30% discount and thus do not qualify for any additional discount.
Joining a Team
You can join a team as an individual (Participant) or as a Family. Just search for the Team Name then select that Team as the one you wish to join.
If later on you want to change Teams, you can by following the instructions on the Participant Summary e-Mail you’ll receive after registration.
Creating a Team
Each Team requires a Team Name and a Team Leader (Administrator). To create a Team:
- Register your Team Name and Team Leader’s contact details
- Select how you want people to join your Team (Public – anybody can join your Team, Private – only those you invite can join your Team, Password – a Team password is required to join your Team)
- Select your Team payment option (Team members each pay for their individual registration or Team Leader pays for all registrations at the same time)
- Once your Team is created, you can add yourself to the Team, add others, manage the Team or share the Team link.
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 – or they can choose to be a ‘Virtual Runner’ and still be part of the 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.
Team Leader Boards & Prizes
Team and individual prizes inject a bit of healthy competition into the event. Subject to sponsorship, Prizes will be awarded to those charities nominated by the winning Teams and individuals. Check out the Leader Boards to see how you’re going.
