130+ Running Team Names

By on May 21, 2018

They say that you need a plan in order to make your get-fit quest a successful one. When you want to become a runner, in part of a team, you may find that coming up with the best running team name that you can is not only part of the fun; but also a very vital part of the journey. 

It’s also quite a tough one. 

You’ll want a team name that incorporates the personalities of everyone in that team, without leaving an important individual out. In fact, that’s one way that you could come up with a team name — much like the singer group ABBA did — using all of the first letters of your names and coming up with a word that incorporates all of them. This won’t always be possible, of course; sometimes you’ll have a bunch of letters that don’t spell out anything than gibberish, but it’s not a bad place to start.

If you don’t have the ABBA option (as we like to call it), there are plenty of other team names that you could fall back on. Here are a few of our favourites, but don’t forget to mix and match to make them entirely individual for you. Or just use one of the ones that we have suggested, obviously. If you come up with something cool, funny and unique, however, we’d love to hear about it. Don’t forget to come back and let us know what you come up with.

Running Team Name Inspiration From Other Languages

In Spanish, the word for running is corriendo. The word for runners is corredores. You could use these words in your running team name, like: 

  • Corriendo Chicks
  • Corredores Club

The word for runners in German in Läufer, which you could use like: 

  • Läufer Ladies 
  • Läufer Lads

Google translation services can come in handy if you don’t speak the language. By using a different different, you could incorporate a theme. If the majority of them people in your team are from Germany, for example, you could use a German word in the running team name to easily insert that theme. Just make sure that you’re not using rude or offensive names, though. That probably wouldn’t go down too well. 

Your team name should be fun — that’s the important thing. If it’s not fun — the entire process isn’t fun — you’ll be much quicker to give it up, and whether you’re running for fun or whether you’re running to get fit and get in shape, having fun is the most important bit! (Well, perhaps not the most important bit, but it’s still damn important!)
