Registration opens in Rochester
ROCHESTER, March 1, 2011 — Registration has opened for the 21st annual Chase Corporate Challenge® in Rochester, which, for the first time in its history, will be held on a Tuesday.
The 3.5-mile team road race will be held on Tuesday, May 24, with a 7:00 p.m. race start at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The Tuesday race date marks the first time in Rochester Chase Corporate Challenge history that the event has been held on a night other than Thursday.
Please make sure your colleagues know that the race is on Tuesday night (rather than Thursday), then make plans to join another crowd of more than 10,000 participants on May 24 at the beautiful RIT campus, which is a superb venue for company get-togethers on race night.
All the information you need to register your company's team is on the Rochester Registration Page.
The entry fee for the 2011 Chase Corporate Challenge in Rochester is $30 per entrant and the JPMorgan Chase Foundation will make a donation on behalf of the Corporate Challenge to a worthy not-for-profit organization, which will be announced prior to event night.
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. Awards will be given to the three fastest men's, women's and mixed teams. The first place teams in those categories will also receive an invitation to the 2012 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Championship, date and location to be determined. Winning Rochester teams from 2010 who have qualified for the Championship in Singapore were Fleet Feet Sports (men's team), Danisco (women), and Corning (mixed).
Coming soon you will enjoy some substantial upgrades at www.jpmorganchasecc.com, including company home pages with features to make it more fun and efficient to share the excitement of participating in the Corporate Challenge. We will also be launching a Rochester-specific Facebook page.
Once again, the Chase Corporate Challenge in Rochester also will be "Teaming Up For a Greener Tomorrow" by utilizing best environmental practices, including registering online, taking alternative transportation to race site, and appropriately recycling on race night.
If you require assistance registering your company or have any questions please email Rochester@jpmorganchasecc.com or call (585) 367-9307. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, May 24.
