Make sure you are a part of the fun at the 2009 Johannesburg J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge by registering before the 10 February deadline.
Entry deadline coming up quickly
for expected sellout in Johannesburg
Johannesburg, 20 January 2009 — Tuesday, 10th February, is the entry deadline for the 2009 Johannesburg J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge®. The 5.6-kilometre team road race will be held on Thursday, 5 March 2009 starting at The Wanderers Club at 18:30.
Already more than 100 of Gauteng's leading corporate companies have taken up the challenge to participate in South Africa's stop in the world's largest corporate road race series.
With last year's race having a sold out field of 10,000 runners, it is likely that this year's capacity will again be reached before the closing date. That said, corporates wanting to participate in this unique night of competition and camaraderie are urged to enter as soon as possible to ensure their company's spot and avoid disappointment!
The entry fee for the 2009 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge is R90 per entrant. All entries must be part of a corporate team, with each team needing to register a minimum of four employees. There is no limit to the number of employees that can be on a company team. However, registration will be closed once the runner limit of 10 000 is reached.
If you require assistance registering your teams or have any questions please email Johannesburg@J.P. Morganchasecc.com or call 0860 460 906.
“The race for runner entries in the sixth J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge is not the only challenge currently on the cards, but the bookings for hospitality space has also fast become a race of its own. Gauteng companies are rushing to book their company hospitality packages that usually sell out within the first two weeks of February,” commented Jon Zehner, Chief Executive Officer, J.P. Morgan South Africa.
Get your running shoes on, gather up your team and contribute to the fun and entertainment on Thursday, March 5 by entering before the 10th February deadline. Be a part of the largest day for corporate road running executives, full-time employees from all businesses, corporations and government agencies in South Africa by submitting your entry now.
