    At real sports events, companies and clubs are often registered as groups. However, keep-the-world-running was launched in order to avoid gatherings. Since participation is free and each participant has to submit their results themselves, group registration would not result in any organizational advantage.

    That's why we did not implement this feature at keep-the-world-running. If you would like to take part in a virtual run with colleagues or friends, you can invite them using the button on the event page.
