We've put together a detailed overview of how to register your team for The Buck Fifty.  All the rules of the race, suggestions for your team captains, tips, runner rankings with distances for each runner, The Buck Fifty training program and even a checklist on what to pack.  All of the details you need to know are listed here.  Registration is open until midnight February 1st 2020 or when we hit our 150 team maximum.
