How to Create a Mother/Daughter Team

  1. Click the link: Mother and Daughter Team
  2. Complete the information for Runner #1
  3. After selecting team name, select 1 of 3 team brackets based on daughter’s age:
    • Mother & Daughter 13 and younger
    • Mother & Daughter 14-20
    • Mother & Daughter 21 & older
  4. At the checkout summary, select “Add new entry” to register Runner #2. Click the Mother and Daughter team link again and enter Runner #2 info.
  5. Please note that when you click the Mother and Daughter link to register Runner #2, the screen will display an additional charge but after you complete the registration for Runner #2 the second charge comes off the fee when you add Runner #2 to an existing team (the name you created when registering Runner #1). Sorry for the confusion on that but at least it fixes itself before checkout.


Our premium for 2022 is the UltraSport Seat Shield in gray, with the WDF logo in teal. This is a super-soft seat cover that will keep your car clean and odor-free run after run. Made of 100% waterproof, moisture-wicking microfiber, it is machine washable.

Available for the first 200 registrants.
(will be distributed race day only)
