Community Teams

Rural City of Wangaratta
Community Teams Challenge

The Community Teams event is an opportunity for people to benefit from mutual support. Teams can be family, social, work-place, sporting group or a combination of all of the above.

Click HERE for a list of teams that have 10 or more paid entrants. If you would like your team added to this list, simply get your team to 10 or more paid entrants and provide us with a single logo and website link. We’ll do the rest.

Individuals who are a part of a team are still eligible for all prizes and awards in the event that they have entered.
