When you register for the 2017 Cider Run, you'll have the additional option of joining a team, or signing up to be a Team Captain!

This is a great way to have extra fun with the event, compete with your friends and family, and maximize your efforts in supporting VEA's mission. You can create a team for the 5k OR the 2 mile walk!


How to join a team:

- When you register for the run or walk, you'll see an option on the first page asking if you want to "Credit this event registration to this team or individual." Select your Team Captain from the dropdown menu.

- If you don't see your Team Captain's name:

               - They may not have registered yet. You can contact your Captain to see when they plan to register.

               - If your Captain has registered: Since Captains have to be added manually by VEA, they may not have been processed just yet. Wait a while and try again, or contact Maggie in the Admin Office (413-349-4120) if you still don't see your preferred Captain.


How to become a Team Captain:

- When you register for the run or walk, on the first page you'll see an option to create a Neon login. If you don't already have one, please fill out a login name and password. This is how you'll access and manage your Team page.

- The next option will ask if you want to "Credit this event registration to this team or individual." Don't select anyone on this list.

- On the second page, the form asks if you would like to be a Team Captain; select yes.

- Complete and submit your registration. You will be added as a Team Captain within one business day.

- You'll get a confirmation email for your registration. Once you're added as Captain, you'll also receive a second email with the link to your Team page. Customize it however you prefer and share the link with family, friends, co-workers, etc. to start building your team!

Additional information about Teams:

- There is no additional fee for joining or assembling a team.

- Participants may join any team.

- There's no limit to how many people can join a team, but Team Captains are encouraged to assemble a team of at least 5 people.

- If you have any questions, concerns, or issues when you register (whether or not you join a team or wish to be a Team Captain), please contact Maggie in the Admin Office at (413) 349-4120.
