About the Team Challenge

Promoting fitness and fundraising, the Team Challenge is a FREE, exciting opportunity where registered participants of the 2016 Chevron Houston Marathon, Aramco Houston Half Marathon and ABB 5K created teams to compete against each other.

There are four types of teams:

• All marathon participants
• All half marathon participants
• All 5K participants

Group Categories:
In addition to awards being given to the top teams in each of the four types, awards will also be given to the top team (irrespective of type) in each of the following groups:

• Running Club
• Corporate Team
• Social Group

Teams must have a minimum of three members and a maximum of six members.


Points will be awarded based on individual team members’ placement within their age groups. The formula for determining an individual’s score is as follows:

(Place within age group) / (number of people in age group) x 1000 = individual score

The best (lowest) three individual scores from each team will then be added together to determine the team’s total score. The mixed category teams will be scored by adding the lowest score from each of the three events: marathon, half marathon and 5K. For example, a team with individual scores of 90, 165, 140, 210, 170 and 120 would have a total team score of 90-120-140 = 350.
