Seven countries return
for 41st year of Corporate Challenge

NEW YORK, January 11, 2017 — Forty years in the books. Now it's time to launch the next 40.

The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge® Series returns for 2017, its 41st consecutive year of celebrating workplace fitness and camaraderie. The worldwide tour of 3.5-mile (5.6km) road races has been owned and operated by J.P. Morgan and its predecessor firms annually since 1977.

Most race dates for events in five continents have been confirmed for 2017, with the Series kicking off in Johannesburg, South Africa on March 30. Including South Africa, in total the Series will visit seven countries: United States (Boston, Buffalo, Chicago, New York, Rochester, San Francisco and Syracuse), Australia (Sydney), China (Shanghai), England (London), Germany (Frankfurt), and the city-state of Singapore.

The Corporate Challenge, a staple of the corporate landscape since its debut on July 13, 1977 in New York’s Central Park, features an all-inclusive road race suitable for racers, joggers and walkers, with most events also featuring a festive pre- and post-race hospitality area.
