Entries open for 35th Corporate Challenge
races June 15, 16 in Central Park
NEW YORK, March 15, 2011 — It is officially time to be fast, as registration has opened for New York's two 2011 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge races in Central Park, which annually reach capacity.
The 35th annual J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge® in New York City will be held on Wednesday, June 15 and Thursday, June 16, with a 7:00 p.m. race start at Central Park. Act now to ensure that your company is not left out of this summer's popular 3.5 mile team road race by registering today. All the information and forms you need are on the New York City Registration Page.
Capacity is limited to 15,000 participants each night and historically has been reached well before the registration deadline. In addition to registering for the race, your company also can take advantage of ongoing corporate hospitality, which provides many value-added benefits to your company's participation.
Please note that companies that take hospitality gain first priority and also their choice of race night.
The longest-running race in the Corporate Challenge series, New York began modestly 35 years ago when 200 runners from 50 companies gathered in Central Park to test a new concept focused on promoting fitness and camaraderie in the workplace. Since that humble start, the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge has grown into a worldwide phenomenon with a record 235,655 total participants from 7,886 companies competing in 12 cities across the globe in 2010. And, the event has never been more popular in New York.
Now is the time to make sure that your company is included this summer by registering while spots still remain for the 2011 races.
The entry fee for the 2011 Chase Corporate Challenge in New York City is $42 per entrant. On behalf of the Corporate Challenge, the JPMorgan Chase Foundation will make a donation to the Central Park Conservancy, a private not-for-profit organization responsible for managing and preserving the green jewel that is Central Park for present and future generations.
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 five 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 New York City teams from 2010 who have qualified for the Championship in Singapore are Morgan Stanley (men's team), Morgan Stanley (women), and the New York Road Runners (mixed).
Coming soon you also 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. In addition, a New York City-specific Facebook page will be launched. Please check back for updates when these initiatives are live online.
Once again, the New York City Corporate Challenge also will be "Teaming Up For a Greener Tomorrow" by utilizing best environmental practices, including conducting registration online and encouraging taking alternative transportation to race site and appropriately recycling on race night.
