The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series is a world-wide series of 3.5-mile (5.6km) running events open to groups of full-time employees from organisations 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 organisation groups the participants into an unlimited number of 4-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 Team Captain, who creates the company team, recruits participants, 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 honours 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 non-profits or not-for-profit organisation in each host city, and through our operations initiatives is designed to make the Corporate Challenge the world's greenest road race.
