Teams

It's easy to create a team! 

Follow the steps to become a Team Captain when you register. Make sure you have a list of names and email addresses of your fellow team members. Once you have signed up, an email invite will be sent to your team members with a bespoke link for them to fill out their own registration form and join your team.

As Team Captain you will have the option to pay their registration fee, otherwise your team members can pay when they get their invite.

Every time a member of the team completes their registration, you’ll be sent a confirmation email. That way you can monitor who has or has not joined your team.

Second time doing the full marathon Mighty Hike, and I can honestly say I have never felt people coming together so much for a charity than I have for this one. Having had the help from Macmillan when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I can tell you the money that's raised, is helping so many people. Laura, hiker of the Norfolk Coast, 2023
