Captains & Team Members

Thank you for your interest in developing a school team of students and administrators for this year’s 42nd annual Statesman Cap10K race. The Statesman Cap10K School Challenge is for Elementary, Middle and High School students and administrators. Engaging children in fun, active, healthy events is something schools and parents strive to deliver across our communities. The Statesman is proud to be a supporter of this initiative with our iconic Austin race, the Statesman Cap10K, on Sunday, April 7, 2019. The School Challenge awards and recognizes schools for both participation and speed.

The School Challenge is a chance for the administrators, and most of all students at your school to participate together in a fun event while promoting healthy lifestyles and to support our 2019 race beneficiary, Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, HAAM. This year, we’re excited to announce the continuation of $1 from every registration going to our beneficiary! The Statesman is also matching up to $10,000 in additional donations made by participants. Not only that, but the Team Challenge is just a lot of fun. After the race join us in the Finish Line Festival where you can listen to live local music on the shores, grab a bite from local food trucks or explore the the CapKids Zone hosted by the YMCA. We want you to benefit from all the Team Challenge has to offer!

Public teams can be seen and joined by anyone registering as an adult or youth.
By Invitation Only means that when you email an invitation that link will work for one individual.
Anyone with the Link means just that – anyone with your link can join your team.

Inviting Team Members

Inviting team members to the team is simple. Review privacy setting above before announcing the invitation.

• For Public team, just inform friends to select the team name from the drop down when they register for the event.
• For Non Public team, the Captain will need to login to team management page to send an invitation. From the team page, Captain can enter a list of comma-separated email addresses and a short message before sending the invitation to join. Keep in mind, only the email recipient can use the invitation to register, the invitation cannot be forwarded.

• For Public team, the new member needs to login to their eventdog.com registrant profile (see Manage My Registration instructions above) where they can join the team by self-editing their registrant profile.
• For Non Public team, the Captain will need to login to team management page and send a new invitation to the exact email address the new member used in their initial race registration. The new member will then login to their registrant profile and once there they will see a pending team invite from the Captain. To join the team the new member must accept the invitation.
