SYDNEY, July 23, 2012 — Registration is now open for the 12th running of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Sydney. The 3.5-mile team road race/post-race party will be held on Wednesday, November 14 with a 6.30 p.m. start at Centennial Park.
The 2011 Corporate Challenge featured approximately 7,500 employees from 293 companies, the third-largest crowd for this annual Sydney event. It has attracted between 6,900-to-7,600 participants each year between 2005 and 2011.
The entry fee for the 2012 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Sydney is $50 (plus GST 10%) per entrant and the JPMorgan Chase Foundation will make a donation on behalf of all participants a local not-for-profit organization to be announced in the coming weeks.
Entrants also have the option of turning the race into a company outing by reserving a hospitality package. Companies with hospitality secure a priority, reserved location within Centennial Park in close proximity to the start and finish lines.
The 10 largest companies in terms of participation numbers at the 2011 event were Macquarie (255 entrants), Railcorp (255), Rabobank (213), Perpetual (154), QBE Australia (132), Michael Page International (130), GE Capital (121), KPMG (118) and Westfield (111).
