March 18, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – Teams interested in registering for the 24th Annual TC10K have less than a week to go before the deadline at midnight on Saturday March 23. Corporate and Sports Teams can register their members for $40, and Island Farms School Teams for $30.

There are 24 team categories ranging from government, education and military to charities, retail and tourism. Teams can run or walk the 10-kilometre route, and must have a minimum of 10 on their team. Teams can also be composed of a mix of 10K and 1.5K participants. Teams who send in their team name or logo by March 23 will also have their shirts screened with their own corporate logo or slogan. “To receive a customized shirt is a great incentive for teams to register by the deadline date, and it becomes a keepsake,” says Race Director Jacqui Sanderson.

Team members make up a large percentage of runners and walkers in the TC10K. “We have 406 teams signed up so far with over 5,000 runners, which shows just how popular the team categories are,” says Sanderson. Individuals can still register online until midnight on April 25, and at the TC10K Expo and Race Package Pick-up at Crystal Gardens, 713 Douglas Street on April 26 and 27.
