Tuesday Team Update – Race Week Edition

It’s Race Week!

Online registration closes Wednesday March 4th (we’ve been granted an extra day by our timing company).  We’ll count online donations up until the event.  Remind your fans they can donate at CrowdRise.

March 4th or March Fourth is the day that commands us to do something, to March Forth.  It is the day Florence died three years ago.  And it is the day behind Florence Forth.  We are marching forth into this week and are so ready to see everyone on race day.

On race day, we’ll recognize the leaders in two team categories: Team fundraising and largest team.

Fundraising Leaders

With just FOUR DAYS remaining, this year’s teams have raised $22,000.  Y’all are amazing!

All of the teams have been busy this past week with impressive efforts.  The #miles4Rory effort on facebook continues to inspire her community.  Team Fall Risk jumped to 3rd and Erin’s Miracle Milers moved up to 4th.  However, I’m giving this week’s picture back to the top spot, Owl Power! They’ve topped the charts for many weeks now.  But lookout Owl Power, Team Rory is on your heals. Here’s this week’s leader board.

A huge thanks to all the teams. Not listed here?  See where you rank.  Want to see your team at the top? We have some ideas for you!

Largest Teams

For the largest team, we tabulate the number of registered runners who have indicated the same group name during registration.  The RunBuds, last year’s largest team, is opening up a nice lead on the pack.  The race for second is very tight with only 5 registered runners separating 2nd and 7th places. This week’s leaders are:

1. RunBuds
2. Dozens of Cousins
(T) George Watts
4. First Presbyterian Durham
5. Triangle United
6. PigPickers
7. Fall Risk
8. Goff Family
9. Jassy Divas
10. Duke CE

Thank you to everyone who has registered for Florence Forth and / or donated to a team!!
