That running is better with friends is no secret. Racing, too. Even if you only have time to meet up and hang out with a group of pals pre- or post-race to goof around…or imbibe a glass of champagne in good company, the experience is priceless.
You know what else is priceless? The savings that many race directors are offering these days if you sign up as a team. That’s right! Find a group, sign up together, and you can save as much as 20%-30% off your reg fee!
Here are a few examples I came across recently. These are by no means the only ones around, so before you register for your next race, it might be worth it to email the organizers and ask them if they can offer you a team discount. You’ll thank me later!

What’d I tell ya? Running with friends is priceless – and racing with them can bring down the price of those costly reg fees quite a bit!
