Team Captains - Biz Dash

Team Captains

We couldn’t do the Biz Dash without the tremendous support of our Team Captains! As the main point of contact between the event staff and your company team, we want to make sure you have all the info you need to stay organized and increase your team participation. Be on the lookout for emails from the St. Louis Sports Commission ( as we get closer to the event.

Zoom Meeting Details

Add To Your Wellness Program!

With health and wellness at the heart of the Biz Dash, it’s a perfect event to add to your company’s wellness program! Looking to recruit more team participants? Talk to your Human Resources department about adding it to the calendar and employees can earn incentive/wellness points by completing the 5K. As communication is sent out company-wide, make sure the Biz Dash 5K is included in those event opportunities. Whether it’s in-person or virtual, it’s a great way to get outside and be active.

Recruitment Tools
Choose from a handful of elements to assist in recruiting team members! Copy/paste captions and download graphics for your internal communications.
Rent A Team Tent!
Make sure your team has a spot to hang out, enjoy your food and beverages, and refuel after the race in the Spire Team Village.


Team captains can purchase a tent via a Team Starter Pack (with a set amount of race entries and discounted tent) or they can purchase à la carte via the Captain Store in RunSignUp.


Tents are limited and we will close reservations once they are sold out, even if it is before the deadline. Larger sized tents sell out first so make sure to reserve yours early! Only team captains can choose what size tent they would like as well as how many tables and chairs they will need. It is recommended that you determine the number of participants on your team before you purchase a team tent or meeting space.


Locations will be determined by the Biz Dash event management when payment is received. The map of team tents will be released the Monday before the event.
