Chicago, February 10, 2009 — The JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge has become a wildly popular kick-off to the Memorial Day weekend among Chicago corporations, and the tradition figures to continue with this year's race scheduled for Thursday, May 21.

The Chicago Corporate Challenge began its most recent run of popularity in 2005 when the race was moved to the Thursday before Memorial Day. Chicago corporations immediately let it be known that they liked the switch. Since 2005, the size of the event has grown by 62 percent, and in 2008, Chicago was the largest, single-night Corporate Challenge event in the U.S. Some 23,603 runners and walkers from 632 companies took part last year.
