Team Run Amok is a team from Salem, Oregon that competed in both seasons of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors and Nickelodeon Robot Wars. The team built and entered two robots on the show; Run Away and The Gap.

The TeamEdit

Run Away was entered in all three seasons by the Joerger family; Mark, Aaron and Alissa. The Gap was entered in US Season 2 by their sister team, Team Creative Steel; Max Chapin, Josh Robson and Jordan Robson. Chapin was the team's welder, and managed to restore Run Away to fighting condition after its axles were severely mangled by Destructive Criticism.

The Gap was due to enter Nickelodeon Robot Wars in the International Tag Team competition alongside Run Away, but the robot sustained drive gearbox damage which could not be repaired, so the team fought with the loanerbot Zanzara. The teams failed to achieve much success in the main competition, with neither robot progressing past the second round in either season.
