11th Edition of J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Returns to Singapore
The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge returns on Thursday, 24 April 2014 for the 11th time of the race in Singapore. Registration opens today and companies are encouraged to register early as a record crowd is expected.
The 2013 race attracted a sold-out crowd of 16,500 participants from 400 companies, the largest in the history of the Singapore Corporate Challenge.
Celebrating J.P. Morgan’s 50 Years In Singapore
Traditionally held on a Thursday in April, the iconic event is one of the first races in Singapore that encourages companies to put work aside on a work day for an evening of fun and fitness.
In 2014, the event takes place during J.P. Morgan’s yearlong celebrations to mark 50 years of doing business in Singapore. Similar to previous editions, the J.P Corporate Challenge will start on Esplanade Bridge with a finish line adjacent to the Formula 1 Pit Building. This unique 5.6km team run/walk is open to full-time employees of local businesses and corporations.
The winners of the Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Divisions at the J.P Morgan Corporate Challenge will earn an invitation to the 2015 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Championship, which will take place next year on a date and location to be determined.
Singapore’s 2013 Team Champions to Challenge Championship
Last year’s 2013 team champions in Singapore were Singapore Prison Service (men), Baker & Mckenzie, Wong & Leow (women) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (mixed). The Singapore team champions are invited to compete at the 2014 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Championship in London on Wednesday, 9 July.
Registration is now open, and each registered company must enter a minimum of 4 employees, with no maximum. All skill levels are welcome – racers, joggers and walkers!
