Teams should be comprised of only walkers. Runners for the 5K or virtual half marathon should register as individuals at StrictlyRunning.com. However, there is an option when runners register on StrictlyRunning.com to select that they would like their personal fundraising total added to an existing team’s fundraising total. The team captain will be responsible for adding that total on WalkforLifeColumbia.org. Click here for details on how to do this.
