If you are creating the team, make sure you make a note of the wave time you put the team into. You will need to ensure you tell all your teammates to select the same wave!
If you created a team, once you have finished the registration process and purchased a ticket, you will then be able to share the team name and password (if applicable) as well as the wave and lap detail with your teammates so that they can sign up and join the team.

No – You select your wave at entry stage from those made available to you on your entry form. Unfortunately if your friends’ wave is full you cannot formally join in that wave on your entry form
As a lot of waves sell out early and the choice of waves becomes limited we cannot allocate any more entries to individual waves unfortunately. Please enter an alternative wave, before your original first wave choice if possible but immediately after if not.
We generally have a few spare spaces in each wave to be given out on a “first come first served” basis on the day so that you can go in your friend’s wave so just be at start on time on the day and we will do our best to facilitate everyone running in the same wave.
13. What do I do if my teams wave is full?
If the wave you wish to join is full you need to join the nearest available wave (Waves every 5 mins) and we will try our best to get you all in the same start wave on the day.
If you are a team captain and you know you know you have members registered in multiple waves please contact us at email@example.com and we will try our best to get you all together.
