Me and my friend are running for cancer in January 2016 and are seeking a good team name. We are running for leukeia, lymophoma, and all blood forms of cancer. Do you have any ideas on a name? I would so love the help. Thank you!

Kristan Zenishek December 3, 2014 at 10:56 am

Hi Adam,

We’re a team of 5 ladies (1 mother, 3 daughters (youngest is 17), and a friend….2 are veterans) running a 100 mile relay in Florida. I see your responses and know you can come up with something witty for us. Any help would be greatly appreicated!

Sara October 30, 2014 at 3:03 am

Hey there

I am in Freetown in Sierra Leone working with CDC on the Ebola response. We have started a little running club of those of us here. Hard work, intense and this is a great mental break. Would love a fun name! We are govt, which thrives off acronyms so something g with a fun acronym would be great!!

Susan August 30, 2014 at 4:53 pm

Hi, we are running in the biggest loser 1/2 marathon in Dec. 28 2014 at Panama City beach. We need help with a name. Can you give us any ideas?

Adam Levine April 15, 2014 at 10:50 am

Hey Veronica,

We stopped taking individual requests for team names since we couldn’t handle the demand, but we recently had a bunch of SLPs ask for some names too so I’ll send you some of the ones I sent them. Look for an email from me in a day or so. Have fun at the race!

Veronica April 14, 2014 at 10:49 pm

My friends and I will be participating in a color run and are stuck!! We are all speech language pathologists/therapists. Thanks for your help!!

Ang March 27, 2014 at 5:02 pm

I see you are no longer coming up with team names,,, but how about helping with a shirt design for yall to print? We’ve got a Tough Mudder team of mostly police officers we’ve named “Five Uh-oh”. Something with a police badge would be cool or a funny saying or something. If you can help, that would be great.

Adam Levine February 24, 2014 at 3:31 pm

Due to the overwhelming response for personalized team name requests in the comments section below, we are unable to fulfill requests going forward. While it was something we quite enjoyed doing, we no longer have the manpower to devote to it. We thank you for the outstanding response and hope you find inspiration in the names above and encourage the community of commenters to help one another find great names for their teams.

Adam Levine February 24, 2014 at 9:05 am

Hi Brandi,

Thanks for visiting CustomInk. As I’ve mentioned in the comment thread, we have been receiving a significantly high number of team name requests over the last few weeks, so it is going to be until early March that I can get back to you. Expect an email from me by then.

Adam Levine February 24, 2014 at 8:55 am

Hi Jessica,

Thanks for visiting CustomInk and requesting a team name. Due to an increased demand for custom team names, we are unable to get back to you until early March. So expect an email from me then. All the best.

Adam Levine February 19, 2014 at 10:36 am

Hey Becky,

Happy to help. As noted in previous comments, we’re kind of slammed with team name requests at the moment, so expect a response from me by early next week. All the best!

Adam Levine February 19, 2014 at 10:33 am

Hi Trish,

Thanks so much for visiting CustomInk. We are kind of slammed with team name requests at the moment, but I’ll try and get one to you by the end of the week.

Brandi February 19, 2014 at 9:43 am

I am trying to come up with a name for our color vibe team. I want something to do with wine if you can help!!!

Adam Levine February 18, 2014 at 9:44 am


Thanks for visiting CustomInk. We’ve had an influx of team name requests lately, so I’ll send you a few ideas by the end of this week.

Adam Levine February 13, 2014 at 5:25 pm

Hi Brianne,

Thanks so much for visiting CustomInk. Due to a recent influx in team name requests, the turnaround on getting personalized names has increased to about a week and a half. I will try to get you a name by the end of next week, but If that is not soon enough, I suggest you check out the Electric/Glow Run Team Names post I wrote several months ago for inspiration.

Adam Levine February 13, 2014 at 5:22 pm


Expect an email from me by early next week. Thanks for reaching out.

Adam Levine February 13, 2014 at 5:21 pm

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for visiting CustomInk. Due to a recent influx in team name requests, the turnaround on getting personalized names has increased to about a week and a half. I will try to get you a name by next Monday. If that is not soon enough, I suggest you check out the Color Run Team Names I wrote for more name ideas.

Jessica David February 12, 2014 at 6:13 pm

Hi Adam,

I have put a relay team together for the Colfax Marathon here in Denver. We are five ladies who are having a heck of a time trying to come up with a fun name for our team. We are simply doing this race for fun, so any quirky, funny names would be great!

Thank you!!

Jackie February 11, 2014 at 10:46 pm

Hi Adam,
About 15 of us will be running a 5K obstacle course in Raleigh called the ninja challenge. I have gathered my teenage daughters and some of their friends, (16-19 year olds), neighbors and parents of some of the teens. This is all for fun, but we don’t all have something in common, except me! Coming up with sappy team names, but you gotta be COOL with teens, or they’ll jump ship! Can you help with suggestions?

Thank you!

Becky February 10, 2014 at 1:59 pm

Hi! A group of 6 women (ages 32-37) that I am teaming up with to run a half Marathon with in June 2014 in Duluth, MN. We spend a lot of time running trails and balancing careers & families and when we asked our kids about team names we ultimately cannot muster up a funny one! Clever is better, you have any ideas? check out the qualifying marathon at

Joanna L. February 10, 2014 at 7:49 am

We are searching for a name for the Marine Corps Marathon. We are signing up Wednesday, we want it to be fun. We will be fundraising for a charity that supports our Armed Forces. Less than 10 of us all women but we all have or had family in the service. Any help?

Trish February 9, 2014 at 8:48 pm

Brianne Henderson February 9, 2014 at 4:20 pm

My friends and I are running our first 5K and it is a neon vibe night glow run. We would like some ideas that are very clever that people haven’t used before. Do you have any ideas?

Jackie February 9, 2014 at 12:16 am

Hey there! I’m a PE Teacher at a Title 1 school but wanting to start a running club for the kiddies next fall when school starts. We need to raise money for the kids to cover any costs of possible local races for them, or if shoes, socks, etc are needed. So my principal and I think hosting a 5k in May would be a great way to begin building our fund. Was needing a catchy name for the race. Our school is Austinville Elementary and we are in Decatur, Alabama. Also, while the wheels are turning, would you please think of a cute name to call the running club for the kids. Anything you can come up with, would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks so much!
Jackie Lovett

Michelle February 7, 2014 at 2:37 pm

We’re a wine club with a reading problem about to run our first 5k (The color run) as a group – in honor of a member who is moving away and can’t participate – we’d like a funny name for our group. Can you help?

I’ll send over some ideas to you in the next day or so. Best, Adam

Breann October 8, 2013 at 9:49 pm

Help! We need a clever/cute 5k Club name. We are all teachers in the same school district (the group ranges from elementary to high school teachers) and have decided to run a 5K each month. So far it is all girls (but not sure about the future, guys may join). We want to make shirts so we would like a name to use on the shirts and to register as a team for different races. There are 6-8 of us so far! You would think as teachers we would be creative enough to think of our own, but we are struggling!

Adam Levine September 23, 2013 at 2:39 pm


I just sent over a few ideas to your email. Let us know what you think and if there’s anything else we can do to help!

Tedi Jolley September 23, 2013 at 1:47 pm

Looking for a name for our running group of 10. 9 females and 1 guy!
Want something catchy…going to run a half marathon in February!

Lauren September 19, 2013 at 8:31 pm

So here is the store I have recently made a big change in my life(lost 130 lbs) and I did a lot of it by running. Now some of my family wants me to a run with them, I finally agreed (I hate running btw) but any-who and I told them that I get to design the shirts if I agree to running but now its not just our family in our group and my uncle who started this whole thing wanted to use the initials of our 3 oldest family members initials are: R, A, M…not much to work with or he wanted to use our old famliy name Zinoni but like I said there is other people who are in our group who are not in the fam so I don’t think they want to wear that. So I was looking for something funny I need help badly! lol It’s a mix of ages from 20-50 years that are running.

Adam Levine September 17, 2013 at 10:02 am


Thanks for visiting CustomInk. I’m happy to help you and your running group come up with a great team name.

Give me a couple days and I’ll send some ideas your way via email.

All the best!

Adam Levine September 17, 2013 at 9:47 am

Hi Maria,

Thanks for visiting CustomInk!

I’ll email you later today to get some more information about your team to help find you a great name. Be in touch soon.

Shilo September 15, 2013 at 3:56 am

I see you are pretty creative maybe you can helpe too. I am starting a running group in my area. The group is mostly moms. I’d love a name that looks great on a shirt and maybe gets a smile too. I’ve got moms with grown kids all the way down to still in the oven. So far I’m at 12 moms and growing!
I’ve thought of the name EMRG (Emerge) as:
Edmonds Moms Running Group but I was hoping you might have more inspiring ideas.
Both inspiring and hilarious ideas are welcome and appreciated. I’ll let the team choose the name!!
Thanks for your brainstorming consideration!!

Maria September 14, 2013 at 9:23 am


We are a team that has a run in 2 weeks and we would really like to have an awesome name.

If this is something you can help us with, it’d be awesome!

Btw, it is so cool that you do this.

Thanks for your help


Adam Levine September 9, 2013 at 3:58 pm


I’ve never heard of the Urbanthlon. Looks very cool!

I’ll get you a couple team names in the next 48 hrs. I’ll try and get a couple politically incorrect names in there too. 😛

Adam Levine September 9, 2013 at 3:45 pm


So sorry abut your sister. It’s great you’re running in Carol’s memory, and we’d love to help you come up with a team name.

I’ll send you some ideas in 1-2 days. All the best.

Jen September 9, 2013 at 1:44 pm

Hey Adam

I’m running the Urbanthlon with two friends in Chicago next month. Any team name suggestions? We’re open to being politically incorrect.


Becky September 9, 2013 at 12:23 pm

Hi Adam,
I just found your website. It’s awesome. I am the wife of a dentist and our office is going to run in the local Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Race. My sister passed away form this horrible disease and we will be running in her Memory. Can you help us come up with a name? Oh and my sister’s name was Carol


Adam Levine September 6, 2013 at 4:24 pm

Hi Dawn,

So sorry about your coworker. 🙁

That’s awesome you’re running in his honor though — good for you guys! I’ll try and get you something before the weekend is out. Expect an email from me soon.

Dawn September 6, 2013 at 12:15 pm

Hi Adam,

Would love your help, we are a Solar Company that is doing a Warrior Dash on the 21st of this month ( I know last minute) with about 22 of our employees/family members participating. We have been procrastinating on coming up with a team name because one of our employee very unexpectedly two weeks ago found out he has cancer and has had surgery and just begun very aggressive chemotherapy. ALL of us here have been dealing with and trying to be there as much as we can for him. Being a small very close nit company we would like to dedicate this race to him and come up with a team name in his honor. Would LOVE any ideas from you… We know it would mean the world to him and his family… His name is Dwayne 🙂 Thank you so much Adam!

Adam Levine September 6, 2013 at 10:24 am

Hi Mara,

I’d be happy to help out. Give me a couple days and I’ll try and come up with a few cute name ideas for ya. 🙂

Hi there, We are a dental office that will be running for a local charity. Any suggestions on a cute name for our team?

Elise August 16, 2013 at 2:23 pm

Thanks for your patience!

Stacie July 26, 2013 at 2:36 pm

Hey Adam,
I have a good one for you….. we are running a “Hometown Heroes” 5 K in October and a group of Police officer’s wives are running. Been trying to come up with something good but maybe you can help us?

Hi Jennifer,

Your race sounds like fun! And so far I like your names a lot. But I’ll try and get you some more ideas by tomorrow. Best regards.

Jeniffer June 18, 2013 at 2:25 am

I am doing my 1st 5k in (Color Vibe) July and our team name is: Color Me a Cab

I have found a great team of 99.8% moms in early 30’s / late 20’s…. The 5k will be in September and it is a Foam Fun obstical…….. Any thought of names for us??? I was thinking Babes from the 80’s , The Badass ballarena’s or maybe we can all dress up as female superheroes…wonder women! Cat women!super women, ext. I would like to find costumes to match our names.

Thank you,


Adam Levine June 14, 2013 at 10:35 am

Hey Jill,

Thanks for visiting CustomInk. The Butte to Butte, eh? Very funny. I should be able to get you a name later today, so keep an eye on your email!

Jill June 11, 2013 at 2:28 pm

We have a team running the Butte to Butte 10k in Eugene, OR on July 4. We consist of a dad and his son and daughter from NV, his brother from WA, and best buddy from OR. Need a playful name that ties us all together. Thanks! -J p.s. I’m walking the 5k with my mom-in-law. 🙂

Adam Levine June 11, 2013 at 10:31 am

Hi Chrissy,

Thanks so much for visiting CustomInk. I’m sorry to hear about your daughter. I hope she feels better soon. We’ve actually put together a new blog post for electric and glow run team names, which sounds to me like the one you’re participating in. Also, I’ll email a few ideas with and without an owl theme. Give me a day or two. All the best.

Adam Levine June 11, 2013 at 10:28 am

Hi Becky,

That’s awesome that you’re starting a program at your school. I’ll try and find something gritty that will work for you. Expect an email from me in a day or so.

Adam Levine June 11, 2013 at 10:27 am

Hi Stacey,

Thanks for visiting CustomInk! I’d be happy to help. Wok and Roll is a good name, but I’ll see if I can come up with a few others for ya. I should be able to get back to your within 24 hrs.

Chrissy June 11, 2013 at 7:11 am

Doing my first 5k with my daughter who recently was very ill looking for a great team name and totally stumped….it’s the night run in Philly with the neon lights. My daughter loves owls not sure if we can work that into the name. Thanks!

Jade June 8, 2013 at 11:30 pm

A bunch of other moms, and I are doing a run called the 5k Color Run in September in Orlando, FL. We are having a hard time coming up with a name for our team. If you have any advice for a name that would be wonderful. Thanks

Becky June 8, 2013 at 8:54 am

We are starting an after school running program at an inner city school and are looking for a gritty hard core name for our club. I love your ideas and look forward to hearing some suggestions, school appropriate of course.:-)

Stacey S. June 7, 2013 at 8:58 pm

Hi, Adam:

I’d love some help on a team name for a 5K relay race. There will be 5-8 of us, mixed guys and girls. A few of us are lawyer. We’ve all known each other for a long time. If you have any suggestions, I’d beyond appreciate them.

Tracy May 15, 2013 at 6:09 pm

Hi Adam,
My team is in dire need of a name. We are 6 women running the Ragnar Relay as an Ultra team. Our course is through NW Washington State and will be pretty epic. We’d like something that could involve costumes, but they would need to be simple and easy to run in. Any suggestions?

Adam Levine May 10, 2013 at 11:51 am

Danielle & Amanda,

Thanks for visiting CustomInk! Both races sound like fun! I’ll try and get you some names by Monday.

Adam Levine May 10, 2013 at 11:36 am


Sure thing. I’ll email you later today.

Danielle May 9, 2013 at 10:51 am

Hey Adam,
I’m needing a name for our Tap ‘N’ Run team. (We basically dress up in costume, run 1K, stop and drink beer, repeat x4.) We haven’t decided on any costumes yet, so we’re wide open to suggestions.

Amanda Wilson May 8, 2013 at 11:35 pm

In our small town, we have a 5k called the Kracker Klassic at the end of June. I am wanting a funny name for a team. Can u help?
I saw some shirts at the Christie Clinic marathon and on the backs of their shirts they all had nicknames, like Hezzy tater, mashed, twice baked. I thought it was a neat idea, but having a hard time thinking of something creative.

Adam Levine May 8, 2013 at 2:23 pm


Thanks for visiting CustomInk! I’ve got a whole list of names for Electric Runs now, so I’ll get you some ideas shortly.

Hi, my family and I are participating the Chula Vista 5k Fun Run. Our team members include myself, my husband, sister, and my 3 kids. We are looking for a fun and creative name while also dedicating this run to my father who passed away recently. Can you help us out with some team names?

Chrisie May 3, 2013 at 1:06 pm

Hello, we have a group of families doing the American Lung Association’s “Fight for Air-Dapper Dash” walk/run. Our company (Monroe Plan for Medical Care) is sponsoring a portion of the team. I have looked at what you are able to do to help others and was hoping you could help us come up with a team name.

Adam Levine May 3, 2013 at 10:18 am

Thanks Pat! I appreciate it.

I’ll get you a few ideas later this afternoon.

Chrisie May 2, 2013 at 3:17 pm

Hello, we have a team of mixed walkers/runners participating in the American Lung Associations “Fight for Air” -Dapper Dash event. It is a family fun event and we are looking for a fun energizing name. I have reviewed all of the comments and see that your team comes up with some very creative names. Can you help us?

Nikki Sosa May 2, 2013 at 2:08 pm

Hi! I’m doing the Run or Dye race with about 4 friends of mine (also all female) and possibly my 13 year old daughter. I would LOVE if you can help us out with some suggestions? Thanks a mill!!

Lisa May 1, 2013 at 9:31 am

Looking for a team name for a group of women doing a color 5k run. We are all in IT Security.

Pat April 30, 2013 at 12:53 pm

Wow, you are creative! My friend and I are running our first 5K. Our second 5K is planned one month after the first. During our second run, our trainer will run a 15K. Need a good funny team name that would encompass both. We’re kind of an oxymoron “Slow Run”

Lindsay April 29, 2013 at 3:40 pm

I’m looking for some ideas for the Glo Run 5K. I saw that you’ve emailed some ideas out, but not posted! I’d love to see what ideas you had!

Adam Levine April 29, 2013 at 10:37 am


That is a tough one. I don’t speak Chinese… So I don’t think I’d be the best person to help. Sorry!

Best of luck.

cassie April 26, 2013 at 3:24 pm

A friend of mine (both moms!) and our husbands r doing our first foam run….any suggestions?!? It’s sponsored by mikes hard lemonade…..

Momma (you) and Momma’s Little Firecracker 🙂
Black Cats (Firecracker Co)

Good luck 🙂

Howie Nichols April 26, 2013 at 1:38 pm

Ok….HERE’S a challenge.
A clever name for a Chinese running club.

Krystal April 25, 2013 at 11:21 am

I am SO GLAD I came across this website!!! These names are spectacular!!!
I’m looking to put together a set group to run all upcoming 5Ks here in the DFW area… and I’m stumped on team names that can be co-ed! I’m NOT good at this kind of thing- can you help?!
So excited to see what you can come up with!!!
Thank you!

Adam Levine April 24, 2013 at 3:12 pm


Wow, your daughter sounds like a real inspiration. We’ve been swamped with requests lately, so I’ll try to email you some ideas in the next day or so.

Adam Levine April 24, 2013 at 12:38 pm


Thanks for visiting CustomInk! I’ll email you later today. Sorry for the delay!

Jennifer April 22, 2013 at 3:34 pm

So glad I found this website. You have a lot of great names and ideas! I’m looking to get shirts made for my running group but we’re struggling with a team name.
There are about 10 of us “girls” running the Boston Run to Remember Half Marathon Memorial day weekend. This is a run tributing law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty over the years. As you can imagine with the recent events during the Boston Marathon this race has a whole new meaning! We are so proud and excited to run this race – we’ve been training all winter and will not let anything stop us. We are Boston Strong!
So here’s a little history – we all ran a 1/2 marathon in Oct and had shirts made that said “only half crazy” The shirts were great and we now refer to ourselves as crazies – crazy girls, etc.
We are all from Ashland MA which is the 2nd town on the Boston Marathon route. So I’ve been trying to tie our town name in as well – “Ashland Remembers – Ashland Strong??
If you have any suggestions that would be great!!

Adam Levine April 22, 2013 at 3:08 pm

Hi Peggy,

Thanks for visiting CustomInk. Sorry for just responding now — I am just seeing this. I’ll reach out in just a bit. Hopefully we can still get you a great name for your Moms on the Run t-shirts!

Stephanie April 20, 2013 at 7:19 pm

I’m putting together a team for the Pittsburgh Pirates Family Fun Run/Walk for Epilepsy 5k in honor of my daughter – who is crazy-inspirational. She will be running also. She is 15 and despite having been diagnosed just a year and a half ago, she lets nothing stop her. For example, this week she was having some issues with possible mini seizures and was really tired. BUT she went to school anyway…and took gym class…and ran the mile…in the cold and rain…in 9 minutes…and keeps honors grades. So, I figured, if she can do all of this on a daily basis, I can get off my lazy butt and do something to support her and epilepsy awareness. So far there are about a dozen of us. Her name is Alainah, but we call her Lainy (middle name is Grace) but I don’t know if she will want her name in the team name…any suggestions??

Peggy April 19, 2013 at 10:56 am

We are running Moms on the Run on Mothers Day (5k) It is my first run, it’s my sisters 50th bday and we have about 20 of us running. Family, friends, kids etc. We are trying to come up with a name to put on the tshirts. I realize we are very limited on time and need to get the shirts ordered in the next day or two. Any ideas?

Noreen April 18, 2013 at 1:51 pm

We are a diverse crew of six – 50 something moms from Calgary, Alberta- planning to walk/run Portland Marathon October 6/13
Some of us are runners and some are walkers. Our Goal is to get everyone across the finish line one way or another. Any team name ideas would be great.

Adam Levine April 18, 2013 at 10:10 am

Angela & Amanda,

Thanks for visiting! I’ll try to put some ideas together for you later this afternoon.

Amanda April 2, 2013 at 3:39 pm

The color run names you listed above are creative, but can you come up with something using the word “sole” for a group of young women running a 5K? Thanks for any ideas you have!!

Angela Ramirez April 1, 2013 at 10:15 am

Hey Adam a group of 4 girls will be doing the Digital Run this month. Can you give us an idea for team names…we all work for a school. We are all from the 80’s. Thanks for the help!!

Kim March 31, 2013 at 8:47 pm

My 3 year old and I do at least one 5K/month, I’ve been able to come up with creative names for all so far but need help with our July one. The 5K is called Stars and Stripes….any ideas?

Susan March 13, 2013 at 8:17 am

Need a fun name for a team of three ladies for a St Patty day run. Any ideas!

Adam Levine March 11, 2013 at 11:43 am

For color runs: One of my favorites I’ve seen by our customers is “Crayola Crew”. “Rainbow Brites” could be good to emphasize color too.

And “Do or Dye”, “Live & Let Dye”, “Ride or Dye”, and “Dye, Dye Birdie” are all fun play on words from song titles.

For electric runs: “Bright Lights Big City” was the first one I thought of. “Shine Bright Like a Diamond”, AC/DC, and “The Electric Express” could be good names based off songs and bands. I just found out doing some research that the Electric Express released a cool funky song in 1971. Funtimes. 🙂

Adam Levine March 11, 2013 at 10:18 am

Hey everyone,

These electric runs look like a lot of fun. As do the color runs.

I’ll reach out with a few name ideas later today. If anyone has anything creative they’d like to share, please comment below!

Daphanie March 9, 2013 at 12:33 pm

Hey there! My friends and I are doing the Run or Dye 5k race and we were looking for a name. We are all girls and we are from Atlanta. This race is all about COLOR and us being hit with that color. lol. Could you help?

Britny March 8, 2013 at 2:08 am

Wait! We’re doing the electric run too 😀 Can you email me some names too? My mind is totally blank.

Adam Levine March 1, 2013 at 9:34 am

Hey Marsha,

Thanks for visiting! Let’s see what our team can come up with. I’ll send you an email with some ideas. Any ones you like, feel free to repost here. 🙂

Marsha March 1, 2013 at 2:24 am
