The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series is a world-wide series of 3.5-mile (5.6-km) running events open to groups of full-time employees from organizations within the business and public sectors. Participants may register only as part of a company team – no individual entries are accepted. After the race, each organization groups its participants into an unlimited number of four-person teams in order to determine the race’s top teams. Awards are presented for individual and team performances.
Each company entered is led by a Company Captain, who recruits participants, and enters and manages the team. Teams of competitive runners have a chance to qualify for the Series Championship, where they will compete against the champions from all the Series events for top honors in the corporate running community.
Participating companies use the event as a platform to promote health and fitness in the workplace, foster goodwill and camaraderie among their employees, and show their commitment to the community and best environmental practices. The Corporate Challenge strives to make a difference through a donation to a not-for-profit organization in each host city, and through our operations initiatives designed to make the Corporate Challenge the world’s greenest road race.
