Runners and Teams

Select A Team:


Team Friendship Surf City



  • Registration for a Team Friendship event is typically $50. This is the only payment you'll need to make, and it will count towards your fundraising goal. The rest of your participation is free, as long as you complete your fundraising goal.
  • Participants also have the option to pay an $1800 registration fee and then fundraise whatever you can, with no fundraising minimum.
  • When you register, you'll be asked to provide a credit card number. This card will not be charged if you complete your fundraising goal by the following cutoff dates:
    • You can give up your spot without being charged up to 8 weeks before Race Day.
    • You must reach 25% of your fundraising minimum 7 weeks before Race Day.
    • You must fundraise 100% of your fundraising minimum 10 days before run day. If you do not reach your fundraising minimum by the above deadlines, you will be charged. We will keep you updated on these deadlines, and you can request a refund (minus credit card processing fees) if you complete your fundraising goal and submit a refund request within 30 days of the event.
  • Registration closes 8 weeks prior to the event.


  • Family Discount: If you are racing with a sibling, parent, or spouse, you will receive $1000 off your total combined fundraising minimum.
  • Recruiting Discount: If you recruit a new committed participant, you will receive $500 off of your fundraising minimum. The recruiting discount is determined by who the registrant said recruited them during registration (maximum of one recruiting discount per person).
  • Fundraising Together: If two participants are fundraising on the same fundraising page, the total amount is split between the two participants and each is required to reach their fundraising goal.
  • Early Bird Fundraising Discount: Raise $2,950 by X date for a $650 fundraising discount.
  • Fundraising perk levels: Fundraising perk levels are only applied when the registrant reaches that amount independent of their fundraising discounts.
  • Discounts are applied to the registrant's page once registration closes.
  • Discounts cannot be combined.

Flights and Transportation

  • Participants are required to book their own flights to attend Team Friendship events.
  • Participants are required to arrange their own transportation to and from the hotel to the Team Friendship experience.


  • A participant can withdraw his/her registration 8 weeks prior to race day, or earlier, without any penalties.
  • After this time, participants are required to cover the full fundraising minimum.


  • Runners under 18 years old must be accompanied by a chaperone over the age of 25.
  • If the chaperone is not a TF runner, they must register as a guest to attend and cover all guest costs.
