**New Category-Team Spirit Award**

Does your team have team spirit? Cool matching running socks? Team shirts and running headbands? Does your team have the best team name ever? Will you be running to a jingle written especially for the Calvin Classic 5K? Well, if this sounds anything like your team, you might be the first ever recipient of the Team Spirit Award. This year marks the first time this award will be handed out to the team that exhibits the most "team spirit." What do the winners get? Well, telling you would remove the surprise, wouldn't it?

Here's your 1-2-3
