Additional Information

Forming Teams

Teams are formed in an effort to raise funds for children who are bravely fighting cancer. It is a way for friends and family to show their support for a child in their community and rally around an important cause.

Visit the Parkway Run registration page and select a participation type – runner or walker. You will then be asked to select a role. Select “Create a Team” to get started.

If I had a team last year, do I have to start over again?
Yes. Captains should visit the Parkway Run registration page. As a captain, you can use the same team name as last year and register for the event.

Team Member Registration

Invite team members to register through your participant center or have them go to the Parkway Run registration page and tell them to register under your team name.

Virtual Participants in 2017

This year the Parkway Run & Walk is adding an additional participant category — the Virtual Participant. You can now register, raise funds, and track your distance during the month of September and skip the finish line on the day of the event.
