Registration is affordable for all teams and nonprofits.
Team registration for the Delaware Charity Challenge is pretty straightforward. For most teams, it's $40 or $45/runner depending on when they register. For non-profit teams, it's $35 or $40/runner depending on when they register. The registration process is being handled online through Eventbrite and CrowdRise, although paper registrations/checks can also be mailed. The below information shows the registration fees for the 2016 Delaware Charity Challenge 5K and Adventure Challenge Relay and will be updated later this spring as details about the Adventure Challenge Relay are finalized.

Registration costs cover your race entry and t-shirts, and a portion of your registration fee (10%) goes toward the prize pool. If you would like to participate as a virtual team (meaning you will not actually be in Delaware and/or participate in the Delaware Charity Challenge that day), a team can be created for $25, which would allow you to still use the race as a fundraiser for your charity. Virtual teams, however, will not be eligible for any prizes as part of the Delaware Charity Challenge competition. Please note: If you do not have a state parks parking pass, Brandywine Creek charges $4 or $8 for parking (depending on whether you have Delaware license plate or not). Unfortunately for 2016, all drivers into Brandywine Creek on April 30 will be required to pay their own entry fees. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If you are planning to put together large teams (more than 10 runners), you may want to consider becoming a sponsor of the Delaware Charity Challenge. There is a sponsorship level for companies of all sizes. Most of the sponsorships include race entries and it is easy to have additional team members join your team.
If you are interested in helping as a volunteer for the Delaware Charity Challenge, please contact us. There is a minimal cost for volunteers ($15), which covers your t-shirt.

For the Adventure Challenge Relay Race, the race fee covers your team members' race entries in each leg of the relay. The team member racing the bike portion of the event will have to provide his or her own mountain bike. Additionally, team members participating in the canoe or zipline portions of the Adventure Challenge Relay will need to sign separate liability waivers the morning of the event. More information on the Adventure Challenge Relay can be found here.
Participant Waiver Form (PDF 1 page). Note: All participants registering to run or compete in the adventure run will need to sign this waiver or electronically sign it when you register online). Those who participate in the canoeing or ziplining legs of the Adventure Challenge Relay will need to sign an additional waiver that morning.
