A team for everyone

Ride with family. Walk with coworkers. Or make new friends. There’s a reason more than 80% of Obliteriders train, fundraise, and participate as part of a team. It’s a great way to have fun and get inspired.

Of course, whether you participate solo or with a group, Obliteride is a powerful experience of community and support. But why not find your dream team this year?

How teams work

Every team has at least one team captain who organizes the group and helps everyone stay on track, fundraise, and meet their goals.

There are different kinds of teams, from employer-sponsored teams to friends and family joining up for a great cause. All can include a mix of riders, walkers, runners, virtual riders, and volunteers.

How do I join?

If you’ve been invited to a team, or know the one you’d like to join, select it at registration. If you’d like to join a team but don’t have one in mind, register for Obliteride first. Then, email teams@obliteride.org and we’ll help find a group for you!

How do teams fundraise?

Generally, you must meet your own fundraising commitment. If someone donates to you, it goes to your commitment. If they donate to your team, your captain(s) may allocate the money. Scroll down to learn more or visit our FAQs for more information.

Why join a team?

It’s fun! There is no better way to train, build meaningful relationships, and support a great cause. Plus, you’ll have access to team challenges, team-specific events, a team concierge, and more.

My favorite part of Obliteride was bringing a team together and supporting a cause bigger than all of us.
