My SLP cohort and I are doing a race also, and we would love if you could forward the SLP related team names to my email! ( If you don’t mind! Esophagals is the best we could come up with so far lol. Thanks in advance!

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!

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!

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!!

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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?
