Hi! Is there any help that you can help me with choosing a team name for my daughter(3rd grade)and her friends for the Dance Dash 5k benefiting the Children’s Network Hospital here in Augusta, GA? They all love to dance and have a sweet sense of humor!

Thank you!

I’d love to help, but we stopped providing personalized names due to extremely high demand and not enough bandwidth to support it. I highly suggest you take a look at the following pages for some inspiration.

Best of luck!

Mary Alvarado April 21, 2014 at 11:45 am

Hi Jully,

We are no longer able to provide personalized team names for individual groups. Check out the names below or some of these other resources for more help:

Doing this run next month with several fun and spunky girls… Could use some ideas for this group!

Adam Levine February 24, 2014 at 3:30 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.

Looking for a unique name for our team at a color run.

Adam Levine February 24, 2014 at 8:59 am


Thanks for visiting CustomInk and requesting a team name. Since we’ve got so many requests for team names at the moment, it’s going to be about a week before I can get back to you. Look for an email the first week of March.

Adam Levine February 24, 2014 at 8:55 am

Hi Samantha,

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 January 31, 2014 at 8:15 am

Hi Jules,

Thanks for reaching out. I’m happy to help, although I can only provide team names and design ideas. I am not very knowledgeable about how to conduct a color run…

Expect an email from me early next week to discuss.

Hey Adam, just ran across your article. My friend and I were going to just volunteer but as I read into it more I wanted to participate, so we decided tonight we’re going to make a team. This will be our first 5k ever and are using it more as an incentive ti get healthier! We both are on the larger side but love to be involved in the community and love to have fun! If you could help us with names that would be wonderful, just send me an email!

Adam Levine January 27, 2014 at 12:00 pm

Nicole Peregrina January 3, 2014 at 11:50 pm

We are thinking of doing a color run for a fundraiser at our high school for our Junior class. We were wondering if you could offer us some creative ideas to make the experience better, that would be great. Thanks!

Cindy Gibson Brown January 3, 2014 at 4:36 pm

I just signed up for my first ever run, Backlight Run in New Orleans which is on my 39th birthday!
Not only is this a huge stepping stone for me overcoming life’s obstacles the past 4 years that have been keeping me down and deeply depressed, but also I am super stoked that I actually committed to something (over 6 months away)!!!
Long story short, my and a few friends are running in celebration of ourselves and our courage as military moms to remember that while we serve our country, serve as wives and mothers, we must serve ourselves, by taking time for ourselves.
I have no clue about naming a team and all that good stuff.
Some of us are veterans now and some are still active duty, can you help me come up with something fun for a team name?

Tasha December 28, 2013 at 9:02 pm

We’re doing the color run in May, and my 14 yr old daughter who is the reigning Miss Bloomington Indiana is heading up our team! Any team name suggestions for us? Would love to have something about pageants, National American Miss, or her title involved!

Adam Levine October 31, 2013 at 9:53 am


So sorry for your friend’s loss. 🙁

I’m happy to help you out. Give me a couple days and I’ll get you some name ideas. All the best.

Kylie October 30, 2013 at 7:36 am

Hi Adam,
Just stumbled across your fabulous site whilst trying to find inspiration for a meaningful team name for Color Run. I will be joining my best friend and a few other close mates for an upcoming run in which we will be doing in remembrance of my best friend’s son, Nathan, who passed away 10mths ago. The run is going to be held 2 days prior to his birthday which will also be just after the first anniversary of his death. I’d like something catchy that possibly reflects ‘stars’ and Nath’s favourite colors blue and yellow. If you have any suggestions, I would be most grateful :o)

Adam Levine October 28, 2013 at 11:25 am

Hey Stacey,

You are most certainly allowed to use one of them. I’ll send you a few more as well. Thanks for commenting!

Stacey October 24, 2013 at 4:31 pm

Hi Adam. I just found out about a color run in my area and am at a loss for a team name. I read some of the cute and creative ones that you put up. Are we allowed to use one of them? My daughter and I really like Team Skittles. I look forward to hearing back from you soon. Thanks. Stacey.

Julie October 9, 2013 at 3:00 pm

I’m sorry for not being able to respond to your request for team names & sayings for the past few weeks. I recently had a baby and was out on paternity leave. But I’ll follow up with each and every one of you via email to see if you still need names/ideas.

Thanks for your patience!

Lisa Rey- how about “Violet Offenders”?

Kayla July 27, 2013 at 5:11 pm

Me and some of my coworkers are doing a Color Me Rad run in October. This is similar to a Color Run just with a different name. We are trying to think of a team name that relates to what we sell at our cafe. We work at Panera Bread so we sell bread, pastries, bagel, and practically everything in between. Any suggestions?

Kayla July 25, 2013 at 8:51 pm

me and some of my coworkers are participating in a Color Me Rad 5K in October. This is similar t othe Color Run..just a different name. We are trying to think of a fun, creative team name that goes with our restaurant name and what we sell. We work at Panera Bread so we sell bread, bagels, pastries, and a whole lot more. Any suggestions for a team name?

Sherry July 22, 2013 at 4:44 pm

Adam Levine June 11, 2013 at 10:29 am

Jade, I’m happy to help! From what I see, Color Runs look like a lot of fun. I’ll be in touch with some more name ideas within a day or two. Talk to you soon!

Jade June 8, 2013 at 11:35 pm

I thought it would be more approriate to post here as this is the run we are doing. A bunch of moms and I are doing this run here in Orlando, FL in September. We are doing this run with our children, so we will all be pushing strollers/jogging strollers. We can’t come up with a name. Any advice?
