Returning on Thursday, 23 April 2015, the 12th J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge® is now open for registration. Celebrate team spirit and sign up with your colleagues for the annual 5.6km corporate team run! The first of its kind in Singapore, the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge is part of a worldwide series which features races in 13 cities in seven countries on five continents.
Advocating the health of employees, the world's longest-running corporate sporting event encourages workers to put work aside for a couple of hours of fun and fitness. Designed with all fitness and skills levels in mind, the race welcomes companies of all sizes and from all industries.
Flagging off at 5:30 p.m., runners will head off from the Esplanade Bridge before finishing near the Formula 1 Pit Building. The top five teams in the male, female and mixed divisions will, as well as the first overall male and woman finishers, will receive awards.
Competition is strong; first-place teams earn an invitation to compete in a future J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Championship race. This year, winners from the 2014 race are invited to compete in the championship in San Francisco in early September 2015.
Open to full-time employees of local businesses and corporations, the race closes its registration on Friday, 27 March 2015.
Each registered company must enter a minimum of four employees, and a minimum of ten participants to be eligible for team awards. While there is no limit to the number of employees a company can enter, there is a limit on the overall capacity of the race, so secure your team's spot ASAP!
Entry fees are S$60 per person and companies can pay by credit card, cheque or wire transfer.
