Autism 5K Teams

We encourage participants to walk or run with a team for fun or competition, but it isn’t required by any means.

If you’d like to participate with friends, family and/or co-workers, then you should strongly consider creating a team. Details below:

– You may register to “run or walk” with a team by typing in their name during race registration.
– To “fundraise” with a team or donate, you will also want to join them on Crowdrise: (coming soon!)
– Crowdrise donations do not count towards race registration (but are very generous and greatly appreciated)!

First, a few team examples from prior Autism 5K events:

Why walk or run as a team?
  1. Teams are a great way to show your support for an individual or cause. Groups will sometimes wear signature items, costumes or t-shirts centered around their theme.
  2. Participating as a team can offer recognition for your company or cause.
  3. If you’re competitive runners, then your team’s times will be averaged and available online after the race. Compete against other teams or try for a team goal average.

How do I sign up for a team

During registration, you’ll have the chance to create or join a team. You will be able to choose from existing teams.  If you’re creating a new team, you can do that too and tell your friends, family and co-workers to join you!

Forgot to join a team?  Name Change?
– If you’ve already registered and didn’t fill out a team name or would like to change your team name, email the change to and we can manually change it before race day.

Fundraise with your team.

After registering your team for the race, please also consider creating a fundraising group at Crowdrise, our donation platform for 2018.
