Q. Can I enter the Mother/Daughter Team category with two daughters?

A. Unfortunately, no. The Mother/Daughter Team category is calculated on the faster time for the two runners. If a mother ran with two daughters, it is possible that the two daughters would have the fastest time. It would no longer be a mother/daughter event. The Mother/Daughter Team category must be limited to 2 people, a mother and a daughter.

Q. How can I enter as a team with two daughters?

A. You can enter in the Open Team category. There are no restrictions on the number of people allowed on the team. Open Teams must have at least 3 team members. The time would be calculated on the lowest cumulative score based on the top three finishers on the team.

  • Top 3 overall
  • Top 3 in each age division
  • Top 3 Athena
  • Finisher medals to all children in the Kids K
  • Top Open Team (lowest cumulative score based on top three finishers on team)
  • Top Mother/Daughter Team (one mother and one daughter per team)

No "double dipping"
