WHAT ARE 6 PACK TEAMS?

6 Pack Teams are 6 Runner-1 Van Teams that pair up with another 6 Runner-1 Van Team to make a Standard 12 Runner-2 Van Team. 

  • Why you ask? The one hardest thing for Team Captains and runners interested in doing P2B is organizing and locking on 12 Runners for a Standard Team.  Our answer, provide an avenue for Standard Teams to participate with only having to organize 1 Van (6 Runners).
    • It’s also a GREAT OPPORTUNITY to meet some new runners and make some new friends.
  • What’s the catch? Besides for having to only keep track of 5 Runners vs. 11 Runners below are some areas to consider (remember you will only overlap and interact with the other Team/Van you get paired up with at Packet Pickup, Major Exchanges, and Finish):
    • Willing to work with a random Team of likeminded runners to accomplish the same goal…run 220+ miles as a Team and enjoy some cold ones at Saranac Brewery.
    • No Guarantee on your Van preference. We will do our best to meet your desired van, but be prepared to Run the Legs in Van #1 (4 Legs/Runner) or Van #2 (3 Legs/Runner).
    • No promises on being paired up with another Team that meets the following: same Team pace, same competitiveness, same likes/dislikes, same Gender division, etc. We will do our best to pair you up with a Team with a similar Team pace.
    • Rare possibility you are not partnered with another Van. This will only potentially happen to one 6 Pack Teams if we end up with an uneven number of Teams registered.
      • We have a backup 6 Pack Team on reserve if this happens
