Managing Your 5K Team

Are you a first-time team captain? Or just looking for some tips to help your team make the most of the 5K? Here is some important information to help the management of your team go as smoothly as possible. 

Registration & Bib Delivery

Has everyone from your team registered for the event? We strongly encourage you to register and fundraise even though we are virtual this year! Online registration will close at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, September 24, 2021.

We will be emailing you a race bib that you can print out and wear as you hit the pavement for your own 5K!

Team Spirit & Photos

Even though this is now a virtual event, you can still show your team spirit in many ways!

Each pre-registered member of your team will receive an event t-shirt that we hope to have in your homes before 9/25! Wear it OR wear your own custom team t-shirts! Create a theme, wear your favorite color, represent your favorite Boston sports team, dress up as your favorite movie character – the ideas are endless!

We encourage you to still participate and walk around your neighborhood with your team, or your family in honor of suicide prevention.

We encourage you to take lots of photos and post on social media. Be sure to tag us and use #samaritans5K #samaritans5k2021 #whydoyou5k


There is still plenty of time for your team to fundraise! Not only do your efforts save lives, but if you are one of the top fundraising teams you could even win a prize.
