Participants of the 2016 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge. The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge provides the ideal opportunity for corporate entertainment and team building. Entertain your corporate team and other colleagues after the event on race night in the Corporate Hospitality Village.

Here are some of the reasons why companies participate in Race Night Hospitality:

  • Brings athletes and non-athletes from all levels of the company together for one evening
  • Supports company Wellness Programs and Corporate Responsibility initiatives
  • Provides a designated site with your company name at the Corporate Challenge
  • Offers tent sizes and furniture packages to meet your company needs
  • Provides a pre-race staging location for your employee’s belongings and gear
  • Dedicated and authorized Corporate Challenge Preferred Caterers to choose and work with
  • Creates an excellent opportunity for participant networking with other company teams


Always a sellout, hospitality sites are located in the various Chicago Park District groves throughout the race site in Grant Park. Each grove is a color-coded zone and sites are numbered for ease of location and identification by your team. Tents, tables, chairs, LED indoor lights and French barricades (to display company signage) are available to outfit your site. See the Hospitality Site Reservation form for tent furniture packages and tent furniture packages with additional fenced space.

To enhance the experience of companies with hospitality sites, we are proud to work directly with seven Preferred Caterers for this year’s event. Preferred Caterers have exhibited excellent food choices and service at large outdoor events throughout the Chicago area. Only Preferred Caterers will have access to park grounds to deliver or serve at your site location. No other food service vendors will be authorized to access company hospitality sites on race day.


Teams taking part in the hospitality program and working with a 2020 Preferred Caterer must provide the caterer's name on the Tent Reservation Form, or email by Friday, August 7, 2020. Click here to view the Catering Checklist.
