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!!

Hi Kim,

Thanks for visiting CustomInk! I’m so glad you like our team names. Give me a day or so and I’ll see what the team can come up with!

Love your darling ideas for team names….my sister and I run our first marathon in october with the Nike run in San Francisco. Any suggestions? By the way we are 25 years apart in age. Running partners for years.

Hey Honeylynne, Patti, and Dee Dee. Great names! I’ll do my best to get you all something in the next day or so. So many great runs/events coming up, very exciting. :)

Honeylynne March 26, 2013 at 1:23 pm

My 3 sisters and I will also be doing an electric run, a digital run to be exact. I cannot think of a fun name for our team. Please help.

Patti March 26, 2013 at 12:27 pm

I will be doing the Harpoon Brewery 5 mile race in May to benefit the Angel Fund (for ALS- Lou Gehrig’s disease). I will be part of a 6 member team (5 girls and 1 guy). Any ideas for a team name?

Sure thing, I’ll be sure to email you one. :) I never knew foam runs were a thing. Very cool!

Dina March 22, 2013 at 10:59 am

Me and my team are doing a 5k Foam run in June. I cannot for the life of me come up with a clever name! Can you help?

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!

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. :)

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!

Britny March 8, 2013 at 2:08 am

Wait! We’re doing the electric run too :D 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. :)
