  • In this team race, triumph will be measured by the collective strength and placement of your team members. To determine the winners, each team must have a minimum of three members. The final score will be calculated by totaling the placements of the best three team members within their age and gender group.

    Remember, in this wicked game, low scores herald victory. So having swift souls in both the youthful and seasoned age groups will significantly contribute to your team's success. And in the event of a hair-raising tie, fear not, for the fastest overall runner from each team will break the deadlock, propelling their team to victory.

    But that's not all! A coveted traveling trophy, pulsating with otherworldly energy, awaits the Heartland Community College department that boasts the highest number of participants. It's time to rally your colleagues, summon those hidden competitors, and claim this prestigious prize!
