Running is a great way to stay fit and a favorite activity for all ages. From short, daily runs to grueling marathons, running is known to attract a wide range of participants.
In fact, the world’s youngest marathon runner began competing before age five, while the oldest finished the Toronto Waterfront Marathon at the age of 100!
The world’s fastest runner, Usain Bolt, set a world record by sprinting 100 meters in just 9.58 seconds.
While very few runners can expect to come anywhere close to that rate of speed, choosing a great team name can motivate your runners to do their very best!

How to Create a Great Running Team Name
Running team names can be funny, motivational, self-deprecating, or profound. It’s essential to find a name that matches your team’s spirit and personality.
If none of the options on our list above suit our team to a tee, create a great running team name using the following tips:
- Get inspiration from your team members. Have your team members each come up with a word that describes them best as runners. Get creative with uncommon words — encourage the team to go beyond descriptors like “fast” or “dedicated” so you end up with a variety of options. The group can then vote on their favorites. You may be able to combine several words and form a funny or uplifting running team name.
- Use inspirational words or short phrases. Keeping your running team motivated is key. Running can be challenging and even painful; everyone needs that extra push to keep their strength up sometimes, and a great team name can provide it. An inspirational team name reinforces the positive; it may even become like a mantra for the team.
- Keep it comedic and light-hearted. While motivational team names are great, they don’t have to be serious. A humorous name for your running team will keep the members laughing long after the end of the run. Think about funny words and phrases in general or see if you can create a pun about running. Jokes about runners and running may also work if you focus on just a funny word or two to create a unique and comedic team name.
