Need a team name!

So we have our Ragner Relay Vegas team all set and now we're looking for a team name / theme.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with what i'm talking about- one of the unique aspects about doing a relay is the whole "fun" environment. Your team of 12 has to choose a team name, and generally pick a theme that correlates to your team name and decorate your vans and well as yourself to show off your creativity. Here are a few examples of themes I've taken from the Ragnar Relay Facebook HERE

I put the 80s theme last because I really like it since its practical for running, fun, bright, and versatile. 

I've been to a few race expos that have really outrageous spandex shorts like this: 

which can be found @ Exercise shorts 4 u in all different styles. I thought this could be fun if either
  • we all wore the same type of shorts so we're matching
  • or 6 people choose a certain color scheme and then they have a twin for the other van (2 vans of 6) 
Thats all I got for now, but I figured out would pose the question to the blog world:

What ideas do you have that are fun, easy to run in, and would be doable for 12 people to dress up as?


  1. Vegas ragnar sounds awesome!!

    I'm pretty terrible with coming up with themes or names, though, unless we're talk about food lol.

  2. I like your 80s idea.

    When I was in college, I ran "Rainier to the Pacific". Our team name was, "Men with Guts, Women with Butts".

    Scott was on an all male Hood to Coast team, they were called "Canoli Plunge".

    I'm sure you will come up with a better name/theme.

  3. Oh wow - this is cool! I've never done a relay thing before, but I'd be all over it for the costumes.

    I was going to suggest the Village People, but then that leaves you with 8 nude runners.... so ignore that.

  4. Love the wild shorts! Love the 80's theme.

    My friends did a relay and their name was "The Chocolate Mile"

  5. There are lots of suggestions on the and sites.

    Our theme for Chicago in 2 weeks is a take on the A-team of the 80s and I keep cracking myself up about it. I'm going to do a post soon.

  6. Thanks for all the input- will definitely look into those sites.

    Also, rest assured, whatever we decide there will be PLENTY of pics to follow

  8. There isn't any right or wrong method to create a website. We certainly have web-sites in connection with a particular niche and even sites on fully unrelated goods.
