How to participate to Race for the Cure?

What happens after I register my team page?

Upon receipt of your payment you will receive a confirmation email. In case you don't receive it, please check your spam.

I can’t find my team page on the website, what do I do?

Use your registration mail to edit your team page. Check if you ticked the box ‘I want my team visible on the Race for the Cure website’.

What is a team captain?

The team captain is the person who makes the initial team registration. This person will receive a confirmation mail with a unique team code. This code is the key to making changes to the team page (adding participants, changing information). The team captain can share the code with other team managers.

Can another person than the team captain manage the team page?

Yes, but only with the consent of the team captain. He can give you the team code or you click on ‘Request team code’. The team captain will get a message and can decide to share the unique team code with you.

Can I register as an individual?

Yes you can, that means that you will be your own team captain. The idea is of course to make connections and make your team as big you can. If you register individually you are still a team (of 1), so you can always invite friends to join your team later. 

Can I sponsor a team?

You are more than welcome to! Click on the team page. There you will find the sponsor button to support the team and make a donation of your choice. Your donation will be visible on the team page if you indicate "I want my sponsorship visible on the team page".

How can I invite friends to join my team?

Click on the ‘invite friends to sponsor/join’ button. You can send a mail to maximum 50 friends you want to invite. You will need the team code for this.

How can I invite friends to sponsor my team?

How can I reach new people to join or sponsor my team?

Share your enthusiasm, make it fun, create a buzz: when training with your friends, family or colleagues, make pictures or shoot a smartphone video, share your team activities on Facebook, Instagram or TikTok using the hashtag #RFTC2020.

What is a Victory medal?

A team has the option to dedicate a ‘thank you’ award to a special friend, healthcare worker, volunteer, support group... This contact will be shown on the team page and will receive a thank you email with the team Victory medal.

What is a Race number?

Every participant gets a unique race number. You can add a personal message to the jersey number (bib) (message per person) and download the design to make a print. Pin the number on your shirt for your Race for the Cure.
