The finish line at the 2019 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge will feature a capacity crowd of 15,000 participants on Thursday, March 28.
The 2019 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge at the Wanderers Club has reached full capacity of entrants and can no longer guarantee new company registrations.
Johannesburg is the only event in the Corporate Challenge Series to sell out each year of its existence, that will be the case again in March. This year’s event is scheduled for Thursday, March 28 with a 6:30 p.m. start at the Wanderers Club.
Companies that have not secured registration are encouraged to submit a request to be placed on the waitlist. If companies that have reserved entries do not meet their projected numbers timeously, additional allocations may be made available.

The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Johannesburg will serve as a benefit and awareness-builder for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. This will mark the sixth consecutive year of this partnership.
“Sport is a unifying factor in our country, and at Laureus it is the heartbeat of what we are,” said Brett Graham, Executive Director for Laureus Sport for Good Foundation South Africa. “Being able to showcase our programs and our athletes at the Corporate Challenge every year is exceptionally valuable to our overall marketing efforts.”
The Corporate Challenge debuted in Johannesburg in March 2004, with a crowd of 6,144 runners and walkers. That was full capacity at the time, with the permit for runners growing incrementally to the current capacity. Johannesburg is the only event in the Corporate Challenge Series to sell out each year of its existence. That will be the case again in March.
Johannesburg is one of 13 cities represented in the 2019 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series, owned by J.P. Morgan and celebrating its 43rd year of continual operation.
