Hi, Rochelle,
Adam no longer works for CustomInk. He has moved on to another exciting opportunity.
I don’t have a record of the Wolf Run names email, but you might be able to find inspiration from our list of Mud Run Team Names which you can find here:

Best wishes,

Hi Adam, I know it’s three years later, but do you still have those names you sent over for the Wolf Run?? I’m the leader of the pack of “Wolf” cub scouts and we need a team name for our boys for a dirty muddy challenge team event.

Hi! My office and our families are going to do the Insane Inflatable 5K in October and are having trouble coming up with a team name. We are a chiropractic center that also specializes in sports rehab so treat a lot of athletes. Our own athletic ability is mixed ;). The owner is also affiliated with the DC professional sports teams. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!!

I’m so sorry for your loss. I was out of the office all last week, but I’ll send you an email with some info by Wednesday.

Dear Adam,

Our friend Lucy recently passed away. She was a member of our bowling league and already miss her terribly. Can you please help us to come up with a name for our team that includes her name? Thanks so much!

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 9:23 am


Thanks for visiting CustomInk and providing David’s story.

Just an FYI, due to an influx in team name requests we are on about a 1.5 week turnaround for custom team names, and after March 15th we will no longer be supplying them due to bandwidth constraints. But expect an email from me in early March.

Maria February 20, 2014 at 11:33 pm

This race is in memory of my cousin David. The bio at the bottom of the attached link explains the story. We are making a team with people of all ages. Could you help us find an amazing name please?! thanks!!

Adam Levine February 10, 2014 at 12:05 pm


Thanks for visiting. Give me a few days and I’ll email you to discuss. All the best!

Hi Adam, Last year my daughter who has several physical disabilities wanted to “run” in the color me rad race. She was hospitalized because her seizures were uncontrolled and now 2 neurosurgeries and almost an entire year of rehab later she is still struggling to return to “normal” She is such a beautiful, funny and inspirational girl who never gives up and is looking forward to participating in the color me rad race this year. I have been trying to think of an “electrifying” , unforgettable name for her team as she has had so many people supporting her and caring for her that will be participating, but I am stumped. Could you please help?

Adam Levine January 6, 2014 at 2:48 pm


Thanks for visiting CustomInk. I’m happy to help you come up with a team name for your Lupus Walk. Sorry for the delay. I was out of town since the 28th. So give me a day or so and I’ll email over some ideas. Best,

ana villacis December 31, 2013 at 8:04 am

I Adam, I am putting together a team for the WALK TO END LUPUS NOW in Naples, Florida. I am doing this in honor of my mom and my sister who are currently affected by it. We usually call each other the Three Musketeers, but I don’t think this is proper since there will be more than 3 members in the group. Any help will be greatly appreciated it.

Adam Levine November 26, 2013 at 8:51 am


Happy to help out! I’ve never heard of the Wolf Run, but I’m excited to check it out. I’ll try to have some team name ideas to you before Thanksgiving day. All the best!
